Nerdist, one of our favorite podcast networks (including both irreverent and informative programs like the Alton Browncast), is releasing a new podcast today that might be of interest to those interested in getting girls connected to STEM content.
Danica McKeller, former child actor and UCLA-trained mathematician, is the author of four books on mathematics that are aimed at girls, like Math Doesn’t Suck: How to Survive Middle School Math without Losing Your Mind or Breaking a Nail.
Today, she releases a new video channel called “Math Bites,” which promises to bring the Nerdist irreverence to math topics, like this video which sings pi out to 75 places:
With McKeller’s solid academic credentials, I am hopeful that this channel can provide interest bits (or should I say bites?) of mathematic content to help amuse and inform.
Check out the release today on Nerdist’s YouTube channel here.
