Science “popularizer” and Yale associate professor Ainissa Ramirez alerted us that she has added two new videos to her Material Marvels collection of short introductory videos to various materials topics.

Her latest videos are on “Thermoelectrics” (above) and  “Nanomaterials” (below).

If you are an engineer or science professional, you already know most of what Ramirez covers in three or four minutes, but they strike me as great for primary, secondary and even some college classes. In particular, she always manages to come up with simple life-sized demonstrations and analogs to smoothly explain her concepts (which is often a challenge when a lot of us try to break down what materials science folks do for our family, friends and community institutions).
