After a couple of months away from the database, I finally had a chance to add some new STEM songs this past weekend. Additions include new songs from the Science Genius Rap B.A.T.T.L.E.S. finalists, Tom McFadden, Larry Lesser, Scott Crawford, Neil Garg’s organic chemistry students, Symphony of Science, Russell Wodehouse, and me. And also some older songs suggested by ace correspondent Leonard Braun.
In addition, I’ve made one small change to the STEM lesson plan page. A recent NSF grant review complained, “the [SingAboutScience.org] section for lessons using science music doesn’t contain any lessons.” Presumably this reviewer failed to select a subject area (Astronomy, Biology/Life Science, Chemistry, Earth Science, General Science, Math, and/or Physics/Physical Science), resulting in no hits. To avoid this problem in the future, all subject areas are now checked by default. (Perhaps getting too many hits is less disconcerting than getting too few?)
