This lecture is from the University of Chicago Summer Teacher Institute’s 2014 program “Energy and the Global Environment: Science, History, Politics.” Through her lecture and slides accompanying the video, Bailleil-LeSuer explores the various ways in which ancient Egyptians harnessed natural energy resources, including sunlight and wind power.¬†This is primarily a reference resource for teachers, but could be used in an upper level high school or university classroom as well. The slides provide key visual cues for students as they view the lecture. >
