Science Documentary Project

With a partner choose one of the documentaries listed below. You are going to watch and discuss that documentary together, in the end producing a 500-word text outlining the merits of watching that video in the context of a class such as ours. Take your cues from the summaries we will have done by then and focus on aspects of science or language that probably are of interest to your fellow students, trying to capture their imagination.

Google them to find out more about your options. The project should be finished by 30 January.
