An Odyssey of Ignorance & Greed
Episode 1 of Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic
The Opioid Epidemic is the worst man-made epidemic in the history of our nation. More people die each year from an opioid overdose than in automobile accidents. The statistics are staggering. This episode traces how an aggressive pharmaceutical mass marketing…
The Strange Behavior of Water
Episode 9 of The Nature of Matter
Analyze one of the weirdest of all substances: water. While we think of water as normal, its boiling, freezing, dissolving, and heat-storing properties are quite extraordinary compared to other molecules. Discover why this is and what water's attributes have to…
Electricity - Ultimate Energy Converter
Episode 4 of The Science of Energy
Discover what makes electricity such an attractive vehicle for energy. Learn how electricity can come from oil, coal, solar, and other forces, and how electricity travels through wires with the help of voltage. Also, examine recent advances that make it…
Ground Zero
Episode 2 of Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic
Rural America was among the earliest and hardest hit by prescription opioid addiction and overdose deaths. The stories in this episode center primarily in Kentucky, the ground zero of the epidemic. Whole communities have been devastated. Some schools don't hold…
The Structure of Atoms and Molecules
Episode 4 of The Nature of Matter
Understand atomic and molecular structure with the help of a simple analogy: the rooms of a house and the collection of houses in a city. See how the electrons of an atom occupy shells, subshells, and orbitals, which give atoms…
Introduction and Philosophy
Episode 1 of Chemistry, 2nd Edition Course
In this first lecture, Professor Cardulla explains how any student can find success in chemistry by cultivating a meaningful understanding of the concepts and quantitative thinking operations that underlie this often challenging area of study.
Matter And Chemistry - For 3rd-5th Grade
Part of the Series: Science Series, for primary to college
Specifically designed for and correlated to the curriulum of a elementary school science course, this series explores key topics on Matter and Chemistry and helps instructors to teach challenging concepts. The films, and accompanying teacher materials, are a great asset…

The Path to Nuclear Fission - The Story of Lise Meitner and Otto Hahn
The story of two close friends who discovered nuclear fission is told in great detail within the context of both World Wars. This video is as much about role of scientists in political events, social responsibility, and discrimination against women…
Energy and Human Civilization
Episode 1 of The Science of Energy
How much energy is required to power human civilization? What is it that makes our cities, factories, homes, and cars so energy inefficient? How can the average individual affect energy directions? Find out in this overview of how energy touches…
Out from the Shadows - The Story of Irene Joliot-Curie and Frederic Joliot Curie
Nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at the 2009 Paris Science Film Festival in France. Using newsreels, family home movies and stills, stock footage, dramatization and interviews, this biography relates the life and times of Irene Joliot-Curie and her husband,…
Heat - The Transfer and Flow of Energy
Episode 3 of The Science of Energy
One of the first forms of energy that humans learned to use is heat. You'll examine three ways heat flows (radiation, convection, conduction); make sense of the heat flow equation and the concept of entropy; and go inside the inner…
The Chemistry of Food and Drink
Episode 15 of The Nature of Matter
Explore the chemistry of food and drink from the point of view of the cook and the consumer. What are the chemicals in an egg, a piece of toast, a slice of bacon, and other typical foods? How does cooking…
Solar Power and Electricity
Episode 14 of The Science of Energy
The biggest area of growth for solar energy: transforming sunlight into electricity with the aid of solar panels. Go inside the world of photovoltaic solar panels to find out how they convert sunlight into functional power. Also, take a closer…
Elements, Atoms, and the Periodic Table
Episode 7 of Chemistry, 2nd Edition Course
In the next three lectures, you cover some fundamental topics that you'll need before you can launch into your study of chemistry. You examine the basic building blocks of matter--elements and the atoms that constitute them--and you learn how to…
Energy - Forms and Conversion for Use
Episode 2 of The Science of Energy
Energy is a fundamental part of our universe--in a sense, the universe is energy. Here, Professor Wysession introduces you to the many fascinating forms energy takes, including potential, kinetic, mechanical, and thermal energy. He also explains how energy is measured…
National Prescription Drug Abuse & Heroin Summit - Andrew Kolodny Seminar
Episode 4 of Do No Harm: The Opioid Epidemic
A video of Dr. Andrew Kolodny, Executive Director of PROP (Physicians for Responsible Opioid Prescribing)/Co-Director of Opioid Policy Research at the Heller School for Social Policy and Management at Brandeis University) speaking at the 2017 National Prescription Drug Abuse &…
Chemical Energy, Biomass, and Photosynthesis
Episode 5 of The Science of Energy
Turn now to chemical energy, the potential energy resulting from the position of atoms within molecules. After an overview of photosynthesis (perhaps the universe's most amazing form of energy conversion), learn how combustion transforms biofuels into light and heat, and…
Understanding Carbon Dioxide
Episode 10 of The Science of Energy
Carbon dioxide is a pollutant so significant to human civilization that Professor Wysession devotes an entire lecture to it. If CO2 is only 0.04% of the atmosphere, how can it be so harmful? Is global warming a natural process? What…
Quantitative Reasoning in Everyday Life
Episode 3 of Chemistry, 2nd Edition Course
Only a handful of important ideas must be mastered in order to be successful at solving chemistry problems. In this lecture, you review some basic guidelines for approaching any chemistry problem and try out your skills on a few sample…
Basic Concepts of Quantitative Reasoning
Episode 2 of Chemistry, 2nd Edition Course
Introductory chemistry is not mysterious: It requires simple quantitative reasoning that comes naturally to most students. You learn about the types of numbers involved in chemistry and how to solve problems commonly encountered in high school chemistry.
