Nature of Science with Sir Paul Nurse – video series

Looking for more Strand A resources?
Check out the new video series about the Nature of Science with Sir Paul Nurse, a geneticist who was awarded the 2001 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for discoveries of protein molecules that control the division of cells in the cell cycle.
These videos are excerpts from Sir Paul Nurse’s lecture “The Fundamental Significance of Discovery Science in the Creative Process” for the 2015 Henry G. Friesen International Prize in Health Research (a collaborative project of Friends of CIHR with the Canadian Academy of Health Sciences).
You can use these videos in the classroom to provide great Minds On moments, and to stimulate discussions about how we do science and how that affects the world.
I’ve tried the Food Science video as an STSE connection for SNC1D Ecology, and SBI4U Molecular Genetics.
The videos:
– Sir Paul Nurse – Personal Qualities of Good Scientists: Humility is Key
– Sir Paul Nurse – Ideas vs testing: the tentative nature of science
– Sir Paul Nurse – Science, politics, and the public good: Food Security
– Sir Paul Nurse – Science and the economy
