Forces Acting on Structures. Part 3

Professor Peter Plankton and Professor Tess Tube examine forces on structures. They specifically look at the impact of earthquakes and tornadoes. Footage from the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan shows the devastating impact of these natural forces. Students will learn the difference betwee...

Structures. Part 2. Quiz

This short video is a question and answer quiz on the content found in the video, Structures: Man-made and Found in Nature. Part 2 (N1262).

Structures. Man-Made and Found in Nature. Part 2

Professor Peter Plankton and Professor Tess Tube explore structures. Students will learn that both humans and animals build specific structures with specific functions and that structures have many forms. Students are introduced to the complex honeycomb structure that bees build. Modern day struc...

Bread Comes to Life

Through live-action footage, time-lapse photography and animations, Bread Comes to Life tells the story of the sowing, growing, reaping, threshing, milling, mixing, shaping, kneading, rising, baking and breaking of daily bread. Viewers observe the work of a small town baker, visit a large farm, a...
