How do science and politics interact? What is the March for Science? Can scientists actually affect any sort of meaningful change without self-reflection?
Meet three real-life biologists on the newest episode of Project Science, out now!
A lot has changed since the most recent episode of Project Science. Here in the U.S., politics have taken a sharp turn away from evidence-based conclusions and toward special interest opinions, to the detriment of, ultimately, everyone. Climate change is now on the White House record as a fringe opinion rather than the dire reality it really is, and the Environmental Protection Agency – an institution which has protected people and the planet since 1970 – is now at risk of being dismantled completely. This is to say nothing of the myriad civil/human rights violations coming out every day.
At a time like this, it is more important than ever to double down on our efforts to learn about the world around us. Here at Withee Labs, it hasn't been easy finding the best path forward. Project Science takes a decidedly lighthearted approach to science education, but present circumstances can make such a method feel shallow. Nonetheless, Project Science will be pushing forward with a new fervor for the rest of 2017 and onward. The tone will stay largely unchanged, but the topics covered will hopefully address many large and timely issues.
A new episode is a couple of weeks away, and production will thereafter continue steadily. I want to thank those of you who have stuck with me during these ridiculously long hiatuses, and I will be making every effort to keep the upcoming content worth your while.
Be safe, be kind, and stay curious.

Thanksgiving is only days away here in the U.S., so why not learn about some of the food you're about to eat? Find out the difference between fruits in vegetables in a new episode of Project Science tomorrow!
What really causes buildings to be "haunted"? Why do you sometimes feel like you're being watched? Are ghosts to blame? Or could it be... SCIENCE?Read More
A shiny new opening animation? Maybe even some brand new music? Season 2 must be just around the corner!
Withee Labs has been quiet since Halloween, but never fear! Lots more Project Science is on the way, as well as another video series, and a host of random goofy science things. In the meantime, here is a picture of some science:
Or at least, it's the first picture to pop up when I Google "science". It turns out to be an uncredited image by vector artist Marish, whose style is so befitting of Withee Labs that maybe I should have outsourced. Too late now, I guess.
So yeah, technically you've still learned something. We all have.
Spoooooooky science comin' atcha next week!Read More
WitheeLabs.com got itself a makeover! Sure, it's still heavily under construction, but how about that new look? Could it be that something real is actually going to finally be happening up in here after all these years? Yes. Yes it could.
