Short attention span science theater

Wanna know a bunch of stuff, but don't have much time? You're in luck with Short Attention Span Science Theater.

It's microdocs (as in small documentaries, not tiny scientists), a new video format designed to give you a quick hit on some interesting science subjects.

Like "It Really Sucks Being a Tuna."

So far, it's mostly ocean stuff, but the sky's the limit if it works. What do you think?

These videos would be perfect for classroom discussions. Children could start with the videos and then expand on them with discussion, brain storming solutions and then putting it all together in a research project.
