Free eBook 101 Science Misconceptions


I want to tell you about a free eBook I’m giving away to my RSS subscribers as part of a site re-launch. I’ve been working hard over the past few months on this book and creating several new ScienceBoom episodes. The book contains 101 science misconceptions along with some great illustrations done by Ramsey Ess.

The illustrations will be available on T-shirts in a few weeks.

The Book

When I first began teaching, I was surprised by the things my high school seniors believed. Such as the Sun traveling around the Earth, dinosaur bones buried by the Devil, and the Moon being larger than Earth. As I was discussing this with my friend John Herrera, the idea for 101 Science Misconceptions was born and now I want to pass it along to you for being a subscriber to ScienceBoom.
