The National Science Foundation has produced a series of 5-minute videos featuring scientists and engineers who are working to develop and improve the use of clean energy sources, new fuels and other energy-related technologies.

Each segment in the new "Green Revolution" series explores the research carried out by men and women at the forefront of discovery and innovation related to clean energy, as well as some of the basic science behind their work.

The five videos posted on the NSF website so far each deal with different issues related to a future of cleaner energy: biomass; wind; solar; microbes; and "CityCar," or a high-efficiency vehicle of the future.

Here is the video on biomass. The rest are available at www.nsf.gov/news/special_reports/greenrevolution/



Each episode is accompanied by supplemental materials for educators, including brief descriptions of the scientific concepts relevant to the technology. Additional videos are scheduled for release this summer.
