Description

This podcast is... well... it's Basically Science. This is for people who want to easily understand the relationship between science principles and real world concepts. Effective science education isn't always easily accessible. Hosted by Adam Burgis and Parker Adam, we each have a degree in Integrative Sciences, which is specifically designed to provide interdisciplinary education of both physical and life science. This education helps us understand and identify the intersection of science and reality. We believe, the beauty of science is in its application. In this podcast, we use our education and experience to help others identify this intersection, and celebrate it's beauty. As a result, it also serves as a way to increase accessibility to science education. You can also find the show on YouTube at Basically Science. You can follow the show on twitter @ScienceBasicPod.

Atoms make up all of the known matter in the world. The word atom is derived from the word greek word atomos, which means uncuttable.
