Explore How Trash Becomes Electricity with STEM in ScienceWorks!

How Trash Becomes Electricity

Have you ever wondered what happens to your trash after the truck hauls it away from your curb? Well we’re going to show you how garbage can turn into powerful electricity brought right back to your home!

We visit legendary Fenway Park and the Boston Red Sox, where we meet mathematicians who have earned real World Series rings for their massive number crunching skills.

This STEM video is brought to you free by KnowAtom in partnership with Award Productions. We co-developed this series called ScienceWorks! as a Discovery's Science Channel focused on how STEM works all around us! We’re offering you the video here free as a resource you may want to use in the classroom. 

“Growing up, I wanted to be an inventor, solving problems that would help people have better lives. Every day at KnowAtom is an opportunity to invent solutions that give thousands of students and teachers a better experience doing science, engineering, technology, and math (STEM). Providing educators with professional satisfaction and students with the opportunity to understand the world we live in is my way of helping people have better lives.”
