Steve asks, “can you think of any examples of representations of â€œscientific methodâ€ in popular media?”
I am not often on the look out for this, let alone watching TV, so I am sure that there are some examples that are embedded in shows other than CSI that have implications for you.
However, the one show that does come to mind is Zoom, and the daily experiment that they do. I don’t know if this is similar to something like Mr. Wizard or Bill Nye the Science Guy in terms of framing the scientific concept, but it might be a place to start in terms of current popular culture.
One other thing that you might think about are movies, although I don’t know if ones like Weird Science would count.
