“She Blinded Me With Science” is a cover version of Thomas Dolby’s 1982 hit, performed by Violet Transmissions. The music video, created by Ben Roper Films, features real ScienceGrrls and fictional scientists from the BBC series Orphan Black.
Dr Heather Williams, ScienceGrrl Director, wrote this article about why the video was made.
During the filming of the video, the five ScienceGrrls involved also talked about their own research. To see these extra videos, read their individual blogs here:
- Roma Agrawal – structural engineering and building The Shard
- Lia Ying Li – laser-cooling and quantum physics
- Suzi Gage – creating gorgeous graphs from enormous data sets
- Ceri Brenner – lasers, super-heating and the fun of experimental physics
- Suze Kundu – titanium dioxide and nanoparticles.
The #sheblindedmewithscience hashtag on twitter led to a lot of tweets when people were asked which female scientists had blinded them with science. Craig Brierley has created a Storify of this here.
