Lights, Camera, ACTION: The Chemistry of Movies and TV

by University of New Orleans

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

This is one of two introductory courses (CHEM 1010 and CHEM 1011) that can be taken individually or both taken (in any order) to satisfy either 3 or 6 credits of required science electives for non-science majors.  Science majors, allied-health majors and science education majors may take this course for general elective credit but it will not count for science elective credits.  This course will explore how chemistry is portrayed in TV and movies.   Students will take basic chemistry principles and learn how to apply them to pop-culture references such as found in shows like Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Star Trek…and movies such as Jurassic Park.  The course will be broken down into two main units (TV and Movies).  For each unit, the theory of a chemical concept will be introduced and then explained first using pop culture references (Wildfire in Game of Thrones; Cooking Meth in Breaking Bad...) and then real-world references (Car combustion, Neon signs, cloning, bombs and explosives...).
