Engineering for You
In this video I explain the benefits of virtual reality, solar energy, and fusion energy and how they can be used. The music is uncopyrighted and free to use however. The clips from lockheed martin, solar roadways, and solarimpulse2 are all permitted for me to use (I asked).

Our Future Shines Above
Every day you get tons of technical information, but that normally doesn't change who you are. It doesn't change the way you look at things, the way you feel nor what you chose to do with your life. Inspiration in the other hand, moves mountains and ignites dreams. It becomes passion, and passion can shape the world. That is what we intend with this video, to light a spark inside every individual and motivate them to release the engineer every person has within, and use it to find a way of making solar energy cheaper. Today, in a world where the poles melt and the economy trembles as the oil runs out, we need to take advantage of the infinite energy resource the sun has provided the Earth since the beginning of time.The person we need might be behind its computer, all we need to do, is inspire him/her.

Virtual Reality: The Next Technological Frontier
In today's world, virtual reality is an up and coming technology. Although often associated with the gaming industry, research has proven that virtual reality is capable of so much more. Our video gives a snapshot into the possibilities of what virtual reality can do, but the possibilities are so broad that we can only cover a few seconds of each topic. Using animation combined with narration, we give brief clips of different areas of profession that could utilize virtual reality to further refine safety on the job, health in society, and happiness in life.The Bonny Eagle Robotics Team (often abbreviated to "BERT") is a non-profit high school team that actively participates in the FIRST Robotics Competition, a worldwide competition for teenagers to teach the importance of science and engineering in the real world.

* signifies an NAE member
Throughout history, engineering has advanced civilization from the way we connect with each other, to the way we heal, to how we get around, and simply have fun. But society still faces major obstacles.
The National Academy of Engineering has outlined 14 game-changing opportunities for the 21st century called the Grand Challenges for Engineering. We want you to review NAE’s 14 Grand Challenges for Engineering, then create and submit a 1 to 2 minute video that shows how achieving one or more of the NAE Grand Challenges for Engineering will lead to a more sustainable, healthy, secure, and/or joyous world!
