Why We Can’t Invent a Perfect Engine: Crash Course Engineering #10

Thanks to CuriosityStream for supporting PBS Digital Studios. We’ve made some improvements in recent decades when it comes to how we power our society. But by and large, our world still runs on fossil fuels and nonrenewable energy. And as long as we’re dependent on these limited resources, we’ll need to design the most efficient […]

This Soccer Ball Generates Electricity | Innovation Nation

sometimes the extraordinary is masked in the ordinary take the humble soccer ball for example when 26 year old inventor Jessica O Matthews got a hold of it you could say it became a thing of magic located in New York City I met up with Jessica to find out more about one very bright […]

Preventing Flint – Environmental Engineering: Crash Course Engineering #29

Thanks to CuriosityStream for supporting PBS Digital Studios. Our world isn’t just some big rock we live on. It’s an ever-changing environment, with countless creatures – us included – just trying to survive. That’s why as an engineer, you have to think about how you affect the world and how the world affects us. If […]

going to live sporting events is a lot of fun but there’s always a lot of people so there are lines to get in lines to get food even lines to the bathroom and in our social media connected world most of these arenas are full of dead zones with no cell or Wi-Fi service […]

Explore Smithsonian: How Can Electricity Correct a Telescope in Outerspace

in this episode we ask the question how can electricity correct a telescope in outer space? hey Josh Bernstein ever wondered how stuff on earth gets tested before it gets sent up into space how can engineers solve problems for equipment that needs to survive the 350 mile trip straight up to find out I’ve […]

The Science of Warp Drives

ISAAC: Suppose you wanted to take a trip to the North Star, like, actually go there. (I hear it’s lovely this time of the century.) Well, the North Star is 4 million billion miles away, and there’s a universal speed limit– the speed of light. Now we don’t have any ships that can go even […]

Improving the stability of perovskite solar cells

One of the biggest problems the world is facing at the moment is the increasing energy demand. Therefore, developing new types of renewable technologies is very important. Solar powers are a very promising technology than can produce a high amount of electricity at low cost. Among different types of solar technologies, perovskite solar cells have […]

Live Science: Static Electricity

My name is Dave and welcome to the Science Museum of Virginia. Electricity is the energy created by moving negative charges or negative ions. Over here I have a Van de Graaff generator, so let’s see what happens when negative gets near a positive. Ah what do you see? We’re experiencing a discharge of static […]

Your Class in 60 Seconds: Aviation Basic Electricity II

(gentle music) – [Narrator] Have you ever wondered how an airplane flies? It is really fascinating. But while we can’t explain everything about the science of flight in 60 seconds, we can dive into electricity, which plays a big role in modern aircraft maintenance. And that’s what we’re learning in Basic Electricity II. We bring […]
