Invisible Labs with Craig Beals is a collaboration between Beals Science and FLIR Systems to bring educational science videos and presentations to global audiences. The goal is to highlight STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Education in a fun and engaging way.

Burning rubber is a great American past-time! Stomping on the gas pedal while holding the brakes tight just to get the rear tires to start spinning is one of the most exhilarating experiences for people who love cars. But, very few people understand the science of the burnout and I've set out to change than with the help of a 1950 Buick Roadmaster with 800 horsepower under the hood!

When you push on the gas pedal in your car th...

Friction and gravity are in a constant battle much of the time. Think of this: if you are standing on a grassy hill with your toes pointed downhill, it is likely that you will not go sliding down the hill even though gravity is pulling you that direction. Why don't you slide down the hill? Your shoes provide friction. The underside of the shoe interacts with the grass blade and together they provide a friction force that overc...

I've been accused of making bad decisions my whole life and this one may be at the top of the bad decision scale. For this experiment I'm standing in the middle of a parking lot on a 90 degree day with my snow ski equipment on. Why? Because I'm going to go skiing in this parking lot.

I'm going to ski behind a pickup across the asphalt. What should happen is that the skis are going to heat up because of friction and the hotter t...

Imagine your life without electricity. At this point we are so used to having electricity available that it would be hard to live without it. We need electricity to keep food from spoiling in our refrigerator, we need it to stay connected when we charge our cell phones and even some cars run off of electricity. We are a world that is dependent upon electricity and our dependence continues to grow.

Many people don't really under...

One of the best places to learn about the electromagnetic spectrum is to step outside where the sun is shining! The sun gives off almost the entire spectrum, all the way from the long waves, to the short waves. And, that's why when we come outside, we can feel the heat from the sun, that's why we get a suntan or a sunburn on our skin, because the sun is giving off all of the different types of electromagnetic radiation.


As a science teacher, I obviously love science, but what I really like about science is when it explains things that we can't always see. And one of those things is light! Now, of course, we can't see without light. But, there's so much more to light that most of us don't really understand.

Light, like we think of it, is just one small part of something much bigger called the, 'Electromagnetic Spectrum.' And, the wavelength cha...

Beals Science teamed up with FLIR, maker of infrared cameras and technology, to explore the world in a whole new 'light' - infrared. This is the trailer for a series of educational videos outlining what science and our world look like in infrared!
