Hi! This is a website where you can see videos about, like, actual science. We will be posting short videos that feature interviews with actual scientists in their natural habitats–labs, field sites, offices, and bars. I hope that you find it entertaining and informative.

The name “Actual Science” was inspired (a.k.a. stolen) from a short story by Christopher Walters entitled “Actual Mountains,” which appeared in Summer 2008 issue of Take the Handle magazine. There is quite a difference between merely “real” science and “actual” science, as I hope you will discover from this website.
