Mindi Warren recommended today’s website that provides free video lectures on physics and science by professors at Massachusetts Institute Of Technology (MIT).

When you get to the website you’ll see the featured video and below it is a menu of video lecture titles such as:

  • Powers of Ten
  • Circular Motion – Centrifuges
  • Newton’s Laws
  • Friction
  • Work – Kinetic and Potential Energy
  • Impulse – Rockets
  • Rotating Rigid Bodies – Neutron Stars/Pulsars
  • Static Equilibrium
  • Fluid Mechanics – Pascals’ Principle
  • Hydrostatics – Archimedes’ Principle
  • Simple Harmonic Oscillations
  • Heat – Thermal Expansion
  • The Wonderful Quantum World
  • High Energy Astrophysics
  • and more!

Click on any one and a new page opens with an overview of what the video lecture includes. Click on the designated link to watch the video lecture.

This is a great way to enhance high school science and math curriculum – and is sure to interest kids with a passion for these topics. It also provides insight into what takes place in MIT lecture halls. :)
