I appreciate NOVA's Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers because it reminds us that scientists often fail to adhere to one-dimensional stereotypes. The series features people who are scientists and engineers by day but have a secret past time in their spare time.
My favorite scientist of the series is the neuroscientist Dave Sulzer, who also records elephants playing music under the name The Thai Elephant Orchestra. Take a look at the video below to see some elephants jamming out.
Dave Sulzer is also a musician himself, and a Professor of Neurology and Psychiatry at Columbia University. Check out the other videos in his feature over at NOVA!
