Interactive video lesson plan for: Derek Muller (Veritasium) | DSC Interview

Activity overview:

Derek Muller is a is a science communicator, filmmaker and television presenter. He also holds a PhD in physics education research, and is the creator of the YouTube channel Veritasium. Veritasium is an educational science channel, and its content ranges in style from interviews with experts, to science experiments, dramatizations, songs, and interviews with the public to uncover misconceptions about science, a hallmark of the channel.
In this video, Derek and I talk about science, education, and his process of formulating ideas before sharing them with the public through his channel. This was another one of those episodes that were surreal to record, and I'm really glad I got the chance to talk with Derek.
