Songs from the Science Frontier

by Deb on August 10, 2010

Children’s songwriter Monty Harper is working on a new album called “Songs from the Science Frontier.”  It has songs based on real scientists about their work – the example below is Copernicus, but there are more modern ones too.  He is crowd-sourcing the funding for the album – you go to this page and pre-order a CD, if he gets enough orders the CD is made, if he doesn’t you don’t have to pay for anything.

This is a great example of fun science, with a catchy tune kids love to listen and dance to – it was definitely a hit with my girls this morning 😀  I’m not only pledging a CD for us, I’m going to get a couple of extras that will hopefully appear as giveaways on here.  I say hopefully, because I’m hoping you guys will visit and pledge as well so there are enough for it to be produced!

I found out about this through She Thought, have a look for stories from someone who’s worked with Monty and heard him performing.
