Physics Girl is the brain child of MIT graduate Dianna Cowern, a self-professed "physics enthusiast and brainstorming wizard" who started shooting videos about hard science topics as a "post-baccalaureate 'not sure what I'm supposed to do with my life' project." It has since taken off - garnering hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube and press coverage from US News & World Report, Slate, and other media outlets. On the site, readers may like to start with the Popular Videos section of the home page. Moving on, readers will also find a well-stocked archive of YouTube videos exploring questions such as "Why is the universe flat?" and "What's the difference between a solar and lunar eclipse?" Teachers and educators will particularly enjoy the Education section of the website, replete with Educational Video Topics, links to Other Awesome Physics YouTube Channels, and an option that allows readers to submit their own ideas for future topics. The Blog, while a less active component of the Physics Girl site, offers musings on a range of interesting topics, from "Ten Quirky Facts About Quarks" to "How To Create An Effective Science Video." In all, this website is a wonderful resource for science teachers and others who are looking for pithy, entertaining videos on a range of topics.
