You-Tube Science Videos

Today while I was hunting for some videos to supplement Module 8, I came across hundreds of pieces from Bozeman Science on You-Tube.  Paul Andersen covered several topics from our current study on Mendelian Genetics, but I also found demonstrations on other biology subjects, chemistry and physics.  So if you are stuck on a particular unit, search “Bozeman Science Paul Andersen” on You-Tube and you may find just the additional explanation that you need.

Please be aware that Mr. Andersen is very pro-evolution.

Module 8 Mendelian Genetics

Jehovah-Jireh, our provider, often brings something good out of something bad.  Our class was canceled yesterday because of the weather, which makes it difficult to keep progressing through the material in our textbook.  However, in looking for additional information to share with you to help explain the concepts in Module 8, God guided me to a treasure trove of science videos.  Mr. Paul Andersen of Bozeman, MT has shared a slew of presentations covering many of the basics of biology.  Unfortunately, Mr. Andersen “loves evolution.”  So keep that in mind as he credits “nothing” with creating the complex creatures that populate our world today.

I believe you will find the following You-Tube videos helpful as you finish your study of Module 8:
