“On Let’s Code Physics!, Lane applies this [Let’s Play] concept to high school science, offering commentary and providing learning resources along the way to videos based on his programming projects, which study physics situations such as police car chases, planetary orbits, and projectiles,” NSTA Reports writes.
Lane has said says he hopes the videos become a classroom of their own as viewers share their modifications or extensions to the codes.
“My goals for this channel are to promote interest in scientific computing and physics and to provide learning resources to viewers. With the growing need for programming skills in an increasing number of professions and the rising popularity of YouTube as a means of educational outreach, this seems like a promising opportunity to engage the public in education and provide resources for fellow educators.”
NSTA’s current membership includes science teachers, science supervisors, administrators, scientists, business and industry representatives and others involved in and committed to science education.
