Monuments

Joe Hanson‘s web video series, It’s Okay to Be Smart*, went to Washington, DC to talk about the science of the US’s national monuments. While our Have Science Will Travel series has generally focused on travel to locations with a specific science focus (eg, science museums) or obvious connections (eg, national parks), it is important to remember that science is everywhere. Joe’s discussion of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Lincoln Memorial, and the Smithsonian Castle makes simple, straightforward connections with the fields of geology, biology, and astrophysics.

*Frankly, I think “okay” undersells the benefits of being smart, but I’m biased**.
