Back during the DonorsChoose fundraiser, I promised to do a re-enactment of the Bohr-Einstein debates using puppets if you contributed enough to claim $2,000 of the Hewlett-Packard contribution to the Social Media Challenge. I obviously aimed too low, because the final take was $4064.70, more than twice the threshold for a puppet show.
So, I put together a puppet show. It took a little while, because I couldn’t find any Niels Bohr puppets (maybe in Denmark?). I found an acceptable alternative, though, and put together a video of the Bohr-Einstein debates, using puppets. Here’s the whole thing on Vimeo:
Or, for those with Internet-standard attention spans, you can get it in three pieces on YouTube (which limits uploads to 10 minutes):
I hope you enjoy it. Once I got past the inevitable stupidity of anything dealing with video on the computer, it was fun to do. Which is not to say that I’m going to make a habit of this, you understand…
Many thanks to everyone who contributed. And if you didn’t contribute, but enjoyed the videos, well, you can still donate and help school kids get what they need to learn.
