Remember this scene? Here‘s their explanation of it!

MIT K12 invisibility cloak

The Physics of Invisibility Cloaks is just one episode in Season 1 of Science Out Loud, a new webseries from MIT+K12 Videos. All of these videos are written and hosted by MIT students and feature science and scientists beyond the traditional textbook or classroom setting.

Each episode has a great webpage featuring not only the video, but information about the students who created it, along with other educational resources from MIT and beyond. At the bottom of the page is a section for teachers that points to related Next Generation Science Standards.

New videos go up on YouTube and TechTV every Monday.
