Science Fiction in Science Class

<< < (12/12)

TV Tropes has already been brought up once, but I'll brave the wrath of people who lose time to it and mention that they have nice discussion on Required Secondary Powers , which basically talks about all the pre-requisites that are necessary in order for powers like invisibility or superstrength to actually work.

A book that might be interesting for you to get ideas from is Michio Kaku's Physics of the Impossible, where he discusses how likely some scifi science is and how close we are to developing it.  He also did a series that was shown on The Science Channel based on the book called Scifi Science.

If you're looking for a short story, I love the discussion of physics in Isaac Asimov's "The Billiard Ball."  For a link to a summary:

Chime - I see pop up in conversation with my science students once in a while.  Not sure if they really like it or they're just saying that, but there's a TARDIS on the cover, so I'm intrigued...
