Microsoft has put together a respectful and interesting series of lectures by Richard Feynman called Project Tuva, apparently Dr. Feynman fascinated by the Russian state of Tuva.
Take a look at this great video: Project Tuva
Feynman simplified complex ideas so that all could understand them.
For a great discussion see Alfred Thompson’s blog about using this series in learning: Project Tuva – a new way to teach and learn. And he thinks I don’t read his blogs. Ok, I missed that one, I WAS on vacation. And I disagree with his title: A new way to teach and learn, yo Alfred, these were done in 1964, that’s 45 years ago. I think a better title for your blog would be: “Project Tuva—a leading edge way to teach and learn, in 1964” or something like that. Ok, maybe your title is snappy…
Grab a kid (keep in mind though that there is a law against kidnapping), your Mom, Dad, or roommate and watch these videos!
There will be a quiz. No really, there will be. Maybe. Maybe not. You know the drill if you read this blog, I might do it if I don’t get distracted.
Bill Gate is looking like he is having fun in the sun, with a bit of a tan that he didn’t get in Washington State. 🙂
