Awesome Chemistry Videos

As I have for the past several semesters, I have allowed students to write and perform awesome OChem videos. Many are song parodies, but not all. I’ve also gotten Jeopardy! parodies and Big Bang Theory parodies 🙂

The first semester I did this, I got one submission. This semester, I received 17 videos, and more than 90% of the class participated!

Here are some of the awesome videos:

I Just Had Lab (Lonely Island parody)

“Got a 2% Yield.” “Still counts!”

Like a Chemist (Far East Movement parody)

Nice production value with this one.

We Won’t Sleep (Fun parody)

I cameo as Superman in this one.

Diels-Alder Beautiful (One Direction Parody)

This next one is awesome because they incorporated the word ‘pericyclic-ly’ into the song… and made it rhyme. also, it’s about my favorite reaction, the Diels-Alder reaction.

Organic Chemistry Terms (Billy Joel parody)

And this one is impressive because it’s to the tune of ‘We Didn’t Start the Fire,’ every lyric is OChem related, and she made a timed PowerPoint to illustrate every lyric in the song. Well done 🙂

I also received two “(Stuff) OChem Students Say” entries:

Enjoy 🙂

  2. This was amazing! My favorite was the last video. It had me cracking up thinking about my time in college. Nice job. I might have to find a way to incorporate this into my high school class.

    Thanks for sharing.
