As a baby boomer I was very fortunate. I was able to grow up in a time when science and technology was interesting, easy to comprehend, non-threatening and most all fun. Oh and also easily accessible.
All areas of science were touted as good and positive. Would make live easier and much more pleasant. Most people welcomed new discoveries and innovations. Shows like Discovery and Watch Mister Wizard and The Bell Laboratory Science Series brought science into the home and made entertaining as well as informative. The 1958 episode of The Bell Laboratory Science Series – The Unchained Goddess dealt with weather and even mentioned their concern for climate change.
Watch Mister Wizard hosted and created by Don Herbert explained a vast number of scientific subjects with experiments and projects you could even do in you home. Like this one on Sound and Music or this on Electromagnetism.
