# Friday math movie: Science is for everyone, kids included

By Murray Bourne, 30 Nov 2012

Scientist Beau Lotto challenges our ideas about what a published scientific paper should look like.

He invites 12-year-old Amy O'Toole to talk us through her classmate's paper on Blackawton bees.

A great quote from the video:

"The best questions create the most uncertainty."

and

"What is evolution's answer to uncertainty? Play."

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)
(See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with $$ and $$.
$$\int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}}$$
(This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
