8 Amazing Ways The Big Bang Theory’s Love Of Science Inspired Reddit

The characters of The Big Bang Theory all had jobs in the sciences. Both Sheldon and Leonard were physicists who focused on different fields. While Sheldon focused on string theory within theoretical physics, Leonard was an experimental physicist. Not only did these two work together on various projects and documents, but they also lived together. Their conversations and findings inspired this Redditor to do the same.

Get a doctorate like everyone else except Howard

Science isn’t often shown on television, especially in sitcoms. The Big Bang Theory was one of the first shows that blended science and everyday life.

The core group of men all worked at Caltech and loved their jobs. And while they all had their doctorates, Howard was the only one with his master’s, respectively, which has prompted plenty of jokes over the years for being the odd man out. It was a topic that Howard and Sheldon couldn’t find common ground on because Sheldon judged Howard for “only” having his mastery. Seeing the group’s education pay off motivated SnooDogos9923 to pursue his doctorate as well. They said, “Certainly the show inspired me to change my major from history to physics. And it also opened up the idea of ​​completing higher education for a masters or doctorate.

Sheldon Vs. Howard: Engineering Vs. Physics

As mentioned earlier, Howard’s career in engineering caused tension between him and Sheldon. To be fair to Howard, Sheldon didn’t respect anyone’s career unless they were a physicist, but he was especially hard on Howard. Like geology, Sheldon did not respect engineering or engineers. Howard has proven time and time again that he is a smart character on TBBTbut Sheldon would disagree.

A life between engineering and physics on TBBT was what inspired Chase-Caliente. They wrote, “I was originally inspired by Howard to go into engineering, but followed Sheldon’s path and decided I didn’t like engineering. Lots of respect for Howard though.

Learn and hear about current studies

Even if a person was not motivated to join science because of TBBTthat doesn’t mean viewers haven’t learned new scientific facts in the field by watching.

Mexicorn noted that they were “a physicist (who lived with 3 other graduate students in physics for a time in graduate school)”. The Redditor’s living situation was much like Sheldon, Howard, Raj and Leonard. What Mexicorn drew inspiration from were the ongoing studies that were done on the show. “I really appreciated the references to current research. A classmate of mine actually had a plot of him (related to supersolid helium) in one episode.

Making science mainstream

TBBT is the first of its kind to make science mainstream. Unless it’s the Science Channel or a children’s show, it’s not a typical theme of popular TV shows.

Baldwinj30 explained how the series has inspired others simply based on its theme. “I haven’t met a single person who doesn’t like The Big Bang Theoryy, and any show that makes science more interesting to people, in general, seems like a good thing to me. And while the show eventually focused more on relationships and friendships, science was still at the heart of the show.

Dr. Sheldon Cooper: The English Teacher

Leonard and company. may have been scientists with a passion for exploration, but there were more themes throughout the show that inspired viewers outside of science. R34LZ explained that the thing that spurred them on the most was Sheldon’s dry English lessons.

Sheldon had no qualms about telling people he was the smartest on TBBT correcting his grammar. “In a way. Sheldon taught me English better than my teacher but I don’t want to see or hear Sheldon in my dreams when I’m about to wake up. I can’t say the same about my teacher” , joked the Redditor.

A perfect example of the Doppler effect

As a sitcom, TBBT was the perfect combination of entertainment, intelligence and beauty. Although some audiences didn’t always understand the group’s scientific tangents, they still laughed while learning things along the way. And sometimes, To be determinedT didn’t teach viewers, but instead gave them new insights into their world.

PotatoAid shared a photo of a scene from TBBT on TV and wrote, “My physics teacher was using The Big Bang Theory to explain the Doppler effect. Sheldon’s clear quotes on what the Doppler Effect was made understanding different science lessons easy for audiences.

Conditioning experiments for the whole class

It seems PotatoAid wasn’t the only one with a teacher inspired by TBBT. Mykidisonhere explained that their teacher also shared a science lesson in their class.

“My psychology professor used the episode where Sheldon reinforces Penny’s good behavior with chocolates to help us understand conditioning,” they wrote. In this particular episode, Sheldon tried to make his time with Penny easier by doing a conditioning experiment on her. Sheldon had some nice quotes for Penny, but he took that experiment too far. Whenever she did something he deemed appropriate, he would give her a chocolate. The hope was that one day Penny would do and say all the right things without indulging herself.
