Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special: In 3-D! On Ice!

Last summer I had the amazing opportunity to participate in the Simpsons 20th Anniversary Special: In 3-D! On Ice!, directed by Morgan Spurlock.  I was invited on the show because of my book about science on the Simpsons:

What's Science Ever Done for Us? What the Simpsons Can Teach Us About Physics, Robots, Life and the Universe

On a sunny day in August 2009, Morgan Spurlock and his crew came to one of the University of the Sciences' biology teaching labs and filmed me performing science experiments related to the Simpsons.  It was fantastic meeting them, and a very enjoyable experience overall.

It was wonderful to see the segment 'The Science of the Simpsons' on the show when it was broadcast on January 10, 2010.  Here is a clip:
