Energy Sources

We can’t use our feet to power our cars like in The Flintstones. So, how do cars move around? It’s energy! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby introduce you to energy sources and basic methods of energy production. You’ll learn where energy comes from, how motion is converted into electricity, and how we use generators to create energy. Discover how water and wind can create mechanical energy and how the sun and earth help us do everything from heat our homes to get work done. Find out how fossil fuels generate energy, and the problems that overusing them can bring. Who needs Bedrock when you’ve got BrainPOP?
