Have you ever wondered how we power the vast expanse of the United States? In this free documentary series called “America Revealed” host Yul Kwon takes us inside the vast energy grid and gives us a behind the scenes look at how we supply the growing energy needs of Americans.

We will be watching the first 40 minutes of this video in class Friday May 23 for Physics as context for our study on Unit 11 – Electricity. I would also encourage chemistry students to watch this video as it ties in well with our current study on Nuclear energy.

Here is the link to the video: PBS SERIES “AMERICA REVEALED: ELECTRIC NATION”

Have a great Memorial Day weekend!

Note: Do you have an Apple TV or iDevice? You can watch this video on the PBS App. Open the App and go to the “More Programs…” option. As a side note, it may be hard to search for the program individually so I recommend looking for the series title “America Revealed.”
