It’s time for another fun site and one that is dear to my heart. The Science Songwriters Association is a group dedicated to the use of music to help in the teaching of science. I confess to being very interested in this subject (you can buy CDs of my Metabolic Melodies at www.lulu.com/content/1307905) and a member of the association. At the Science Songwriters site you can see a variety of miscellaneous materials, including pix, a short section on pedagogy, and announcements. The most useful section of the site, however, is a listing of the various offerings that are available, mostly in CD form. There are a lot of creative people out there. I know from writing and using my own songs in the classroom that they do, indeed, have educational value and for a complicated subject like biochemistry, they make it seem at least a little less daunting and even a bit fun.
