Before you start, did you know we're on TikTok too?! Hop over and follow us at @geniuslabgear for fun science and chemistry videos!
For an engineering and technology enthusiast, Interesting Engineering is a perfect community that brings the latest technological news, ground-breaking scientific discoveries, and interesting engineering projects from around the world. Take a look at this video of a car that can be moved with hand gestures. How cool is that?
Do you love engineering? Drake Anthony (a.k.a. styro_pyro on TikTok) is like a mad scientist. His experiments and machines look very dangerous but are beyond cool. His content ranges from butterfly facts to playing with electricity that could instantly kill a human! In the name of science, Drake is willing to risk his life to spread knowledge through science-focused entertainment.
This amazing video shows a view of a rocket launch from the International Space Station. If you love space and rockets, follow Astro Spaceflight! Join their community of space enthusiasts to keep up with the latest news in space technology!
If you want to see fascinating technology applied in engineering applications, check out @engineering_everything on TikTok. They provide tons of videos related to engineering that are educational and entertaining. Take a look at this video about the mechanics behind a differential in a car.
Matt Oehrlein is the CEO and co-founder of MegaBots and he uses TikTok to share his craziest robot creations! These giant robots were created in 2014 by a group of creative engineers who grew up with enormous battling robots in video games, movies, and comic books. They hope to excite a growing global audience of science fiction and eSport lovers by bringing their dreams of giant robot combat to life.
Pandabionics is a fantastic resource for engineers interested in bionic prosthetic devices. Ryan Saavedra, an electrical engineer, is the brains behind the channel. He was able to design and create prosthetic devices that could benefit people all over the world thanks to his skills in robotics engineering. Here’s Ryan explaining where to begin if you want to get started with robotics:
Everyday Engineering delves into many aspects of civil engineering, such as structural and construction engineering, urban planning, transportation, and sanitation. The channel educates viewers about infrastructure and is ideal for civil engineering fans. Check out their video below about a freeway removal project:
Finding a lab coat that fits well can be a real challenge for many women, especially those that would consider themselves curvy, plus-sized, and petite. We surveyed over 800 female scientists. This article will share their most common problems with lab coats and how to solve them.
Are you wearing a lab coat designed for a doctor? Or for a scientist? How can you tell? We surveyed over 1500 scientists to figure out what they want in their perfect lab coat. In this article, I’ll break down the 7 key things you should look for when deciding what you should buy.
We surveyed over 1500 scientists on what makes the best lab coat. Their comments reveal that small upgrades to your lab coat can be LIFE CHANGING (or feel like it). There’s a fierce debate between the knit cuffed sleeve and the straight open cuff camps, but our survey data reveals one clear favorite.
