Our Mr. Sun

I hadn't seen this since Mrs. Jacobus's class in the sixth grade. It's so elegant, layered, clever, and wonderful. I wish that someone would make a modern equivalent of this kind of educational film. Thank you, Frank Capra, thank you, Dr. Research. You made me feel that science was wonderful and worth doing.


  1. I went back and watched these when i was working at MIT. They are fantastic. Congratulations on the book. I'm going to teach it next term.

  2. Thanks Kurt! I'll be eager to hear how it goes, teaching with the book!
