This is a fabulous series that explore science. Six animated videos are available that show "the way we think scientifically by considering skepticism, testing, blinding, uncertainty ethics and citizen science." By title they are:
* This Thing Called Science Part 1: Call me skeptical
* This Thing Called Science Part 2: Testing, testing, 1, 2, 3
* This Thing Called Science Part 3: Blinded by Science
* This Thing Called Science Part 4: Confidently Uncertain
* This Thing Called Science Part 5: Do the Right Thing
* This Thing Called Science Part 6: Citizen Science
These videos were created by Bridge8, who also put out a great series of videos on Critical Thinking. You can find that series at http://bridge8.wordpress.com/2012/01/30/critical-thinking-animations/
There are also 2 guides available for the Critical Thinking series, a postcard size one and an extended one. I found these on YouTube when I accessed the video Critical Thinking Part 1: A Valuable Argument uploaded by techNyouvids.
Great series for introduction to scientific concepts and research methods. When we are aware of sources of bias we can devise ways to test for it or eliminate it.
