The Nobel Prize Channel on YouTube

During my quest for educationally sound videos, I came across the Nobel Prize Channel on YouTube. In case you didn't know, The Nobel Prize organization has their own channel on YouTube, which brings you fascinating insights into the minds of current and past Nobel Laureates courtesy of Nobelprize.org, the official web site of the Nobel Foundation.

Here, you can watch a range of Laureates give interviews and official Nobel Lectures, in which they reveal the stories that helped shape their lives and careers. You can also see the official videos of the Nobel Prize announcements, where members of the Nobel Prize-Awarding Committees reveal their reasons behind their choices for each year's Prizes.

Imagine the potential for greatness that you're exposing your students to as a classroom subscriber to the Nobel Prize Channel.

Here is video of Robert Grubbs and Richard Schrock, two men who received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2005. In this interview excerpt, they talk about the status of science today among the general public in the United States.
