Interactive video lesson plan for: The Science Geeks and the Artsy Cool Kids Need to Get Together, Says Brian Greene

Activity overview:

Artists and scientists alike strive "to figure out the deep truths of reality," explains physicist Brian Greene. The ways they pursue that goal are different, but there's no reason why two segments of society seeking answers can't work together.

Transcript - For a long time I think there has been this unfortunate sense that you’ve got the science geeks over here and you’ve got the cool art kids over here and that sort of extends further on into life where there’s a sense that these two worlds are somehow separate. And the fact of the matter is we’re all in it for the same reason. We’re all just trying to figure out the deep truths of reality. I mean think about it. We’re all thrust onto this weird planet going around this star and we’re all given a little bit of time. And we don’t know what to do with our time. What’s important? Why are we here, right? I mean it sounds woo, woo, but I’m talking about really when you think about your life, what matters? And at the end of the day scientists do what they do because they’re searching for the deep law, the deep understanding of how we got here and where we may be going. And artists, the ones that I’ve had interactions with they’re also looking for the truth. Some kind of insight into why we’re here and what it’s all about. And what’s amazingly potent is when these two communities come together and allow the underlying insights of science to inform the poetry of art, then there’s some wonderful things that can emerge. Because at the end of the day these disciplines are not separate. These disciplines are all part of humankind’s search for understanding.
