The Science Media Group (SMG) was founded by Dr. Matthew H. Schneps and Dr. Philip Michael Sadler as an experimental project to explore novel applications of video in the service of science education. In operation at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory and the Harvard College Observatory from 1989 to 2013, this accession consists of videotapes and motion picture film of edited programs, camera masters, and supporting materials. The programs focus on classroom teaching and reflect the best practices drawn from research in science teaching and learning. Programs include interviews and on-camera presentations by leaders in the science education reform movement; extensive interviews with students, science and mathematics content experts, and K-12 and information science educators.
Productions, events, and units documented include: Essential Science for Teachers; Misconceptions-Orientated Standards-Based Assessment Resources for Teachers; the Harvard Museum of Natural History; the Solar Dynamics Observatory; the Smithsonian Science Education Center; the exhibition: Visions of the Universe: Four Centuries of Discovery; the South Pole Telescope; Asian/Pacific Islander American Heritage Month; massive star formations; conferences; and professional development videos.
