Throw a pebble into a lake or stream and ripples will radiate out from the place of entry, breaking the inertia at the surface.

| 1 Comment  
01-22-Reichs.jpgYouTube is usually a one-stop shop for movie trailers, music and cat videos. But one family is using the popular website to educate viewers on earth and climate science, one video at a time.

Last March, brothers Henry and Alex Reich, along with their father, IonE resident fellow Peter Reich, created the YouTube channel MinuteEarth, featuring one- to three-minute animated videos focusing on topics ranging from fisheries management to atmospheric science. The three shared their experience at the Institute on the Environment's first Frontiers in the Environment presentation of the semester - "Science Communication: Teach, Entertain or Inspire?"  - Wednesday, Jan. 29 at the University of Minnesota in St. Paul.
