Streaming services have kept us entertained while social distancing, with an abundance of content showcasing STEM culture. Here are my personal favorites:
Movies: For families, my top choice is “Hidden Figures,” celebrating three female mathematicians and offering a powerful alternative history lesson. And you don’t have to be a fan of Facebook’s founder to enjoy screenwriter Aaron Sorkin’s excellent “The Social Network.”
TV: A middle-aged chemist makes meth-dealing oddly relatable in “Breaking Bad.” It’s a modern classic for a reason.
Music: I’ll always take Queen, a band comprised of an astrophysicist, a technologist, a biologist and the great Freddie Mercury.
