Wonderfest has some fantastic videos of their older presentations on their YouTube channel. My personal favorite was “Astrobiology – Dr. Penelope Boston“, about the influence of our studies of extreme Earth climates on how we might perceive life on other planets. There’s nothing quite so enjoyable as watching someone highly educated get passionate about their area of expertise. Dr. Boston appears to love what she does and makes it accessible even to non-STEM people like me. She also uses delightfully surreal imagery throughout her presentation: some actual cave photos, some Escher-like illustrations. It’s very much a feast for the eyes.
Show Wonderfest some love!
