© Special Broadcasting Service Corporation

Engineering Connections
National Geographic Channel

Follow Richard Hammond as he links the engineering innovations of the Airbus A380, Hawaii's Keck Observer, Norway's Troll A Platform and Taipei 101 in the captivating first series of Engineering Connections. Hammond explores the surprising elements such as Mongol bows, sand blasters, racing cars and bamboo, that were used to achieve these engineering feats . Conducting experiments involving everything from chicken guns to electric guitars in order to demonstrate how construction designs and materials work, Hammond has fun presenting complex ideas with creativity. And most fascinating of all are the unusual connections drawn between history, nature and everyday items with engineering design.

This video is among the many available to borrow from the Visual Resources Center in the Art, Architecture and Engineering Library. Search for videos in Mirlyn or in our video database.
