Local teacher helps ‘science make sense’


TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – Raise your hand folks or your hair, the first question is, what is SciOnTheFly?

“I chose SciOnTheFly, the place where science makes sense, because that is exactly what I want to do. I want to help make science make sense,” explained Jeremy Johnson, SciOnTheFly host.

Jeremy is taking that tricky material and breaking it down visually and more clear.

“I really want to help them understand what they’re seeing. I want people coming to my videos for education, I don’t want to bore them, I want them walking away knowing something,” said Johnson.

A philosophy of a teacher, and that is what Mr. J. is, a 7th grade science teacher here in Terre Haute.

“I want to make the biggest difference inside my room and outside my room,” expressed Johnson.

You might remember him from the hot air balloon launch previously this year. But Mr. J. says SciOnTheFly is a teaching plan built for almost all ages.

“My videos I’m trying to make for anyone literally from five years old to forty to fifty years-old,” said Johnson.

SciOnTheFly is bubbling out of the test tubes as Mr. J has taken his new video learning system to the stage, to local events, and is hoping to take SciOnTheFly to higher elements. No, not on the periodic table (joke of the week?), but for those looking to learn more science.
