The Human Spark
What makes us uniquely human? In a three-part series originally broadcast on PBS in January 2010, Alan Alda takes this question personally, visiting with dozens of scientists on three continents, and participating directly in many experiments – including the detailed examination of his own brain.Through this collection of lesson plans and video resources, students join Alda in searching for the answer to this question. In the process, they explore human evolution, prehistory, child development, the human brain, and more.
