Our science teacher chuckles over the commentary he gets from the kids:
- "Why is the left side so plain?"
- "Why is the right side so messy?"
- "Oh! Look at all the beautiful colors on the right side."
- "The left side makes me feel so calm and relaxed."
The Symphony of Science is the work of musician/producer John Boswell. Through it, he brings the two hemispheres of the brain together, by incorporating the words of scientists with music. Pretty memorable approach, if you ask me. Click here for a pretty lengthy list of his remixes.
Truthfully, I think this is the approach that Sheldon should take with Penny on "Big Bang Theory!" I think if he presented some of his left brain physics concepts to his quirky actress neighbor Penny using the "Symphony of Science," Sheldon may indeed have a lot more luck!! Plus, then, when I watched, I could sing along!
