Boston Globe Media's STAT News (featured in the 10-21-2016 Scout Report) has recently introduced Boddities - a series of educational videos about "the quirks of the human body." As of this write-up, the series includes eleven short videos (approximately two to three minutes in length) that answer the kind of body-related questions you've probably found yourself wondering, such as "Why do our fingers get wrinkly in the water?" Each episode is hosted by STAT reporter Megan Thielking and features a combination of helpful animations and interviews with expert scientists. For health and science educators interested in incorporating Boddities into the classroom, three of these videos are accompanied by short worksheets.
