‘Gross Science’ will teach you about the weirdest things in nature
Sometimes nature just makes you say ‘ew.’
Science can be, well, disgusting, but that doesn’t make it any less interesting or educational. A new YouTube series from educational powerhouse PBS Digital Studios wants to make even the weirdest science entertaining by giving you a weekly dose of gross.
PBS has paired with Boston-based NOVA to produce Gross Science, and it’s kicking the lessons off with three videos about very unsettling topics: how the normally boring sea cucumber can eviscerate its own internal organs; how 3-foot-long worms mate in your abdomen; and how various diseases can make you smell.
“Paradoxically, I find the most beauty and wonder in science when I examine its slimy, smelly, creepy underbelly,” NOVA Digital Producer and Gross Science host Anna Rothschild said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to partner with PBS Digital Studios to bring to life a new series that inspires curious people of all ages to enjoy science, to see it as a story, and to ask lots of questions about the world—especially if they’re about poop and parasites.”
Rothschild will produce one Gross Science lesson every week, with a total of 40 videos in the first season.
