Science for those with short attention spans

While we were in Fiji for the IAMSLIC conference, the HMS Director, Steve Palumbi, was also flying through FIji on his way to Tuvalu to film another short movie for his MicroDocs project.  This project was released a few weeks ago at URL:

http://microdocs.stanford.edu/

All the movie clips are between 2 and 4 minutes based on the habits of today’s younger generation.  Accompanying those clips is background information with lots more detail including references.  The site was also designed to help K through 12 science teachers.  For a press release about the site, to to URL:

Most of the clips are from south seas islands and other exotic locations, so many of those that attended this years conference might find their island featured.
