  • Pirate Film Spoof - Chemistry in the Everglades

    Sick of serious science lectures? Well, we are too! Here at Untamed Science we’re filming a series of historical spoofs to explain chemistry concepts in a fresh, new way! Our latest video took us back in time to one of the oldest cities in the US: St. Augustine, Florida. We filmed a short video starring two quartermaster-alchemists (Ecogeeks Danni Washington & Diego Meza), who after a long journey lost at sea, venture to shore to buy supplies that will help them complete their voyages. There’s only one problem. When they arrive at the “Voyagers’ Supply Store” to get their goods, they soon discover that they have been left in the past by speaking languages of archaic chemistry. Lucky for them and their crews, the more modern, supply store chemist (Suze Roots) figures out what supplies they need, and explains the system we use today to name chemical compounds and formulas. This video will be part of the High School Chemistry series being produced by the Untamed Science team this year.
