“I PHYZ GOOD” series: Launch of the thermal comfort episode

11/03/2016

The second episode of the “I PHYZ GOOD” series about thermal comfort will be broadcast on the String Theory YouTube scientific channel on November 3. The episode shows David Louapre, a research scientist in physics at Saint-Gobain, explaining the sensations we can have when entering a building: hot or cold; comfortable or uncomfortable. It was filmed at the Ice Cube Bar in Paris and at the Domolab, Saint-Gobain’s innovation center for sustainable habitat based in Aubervilliers on the outskirts of Paris.

The “I PHYZ GOOD” series was created through a partnership between Saint-Gobain and the String Theory  YouTube scientific channel to offer an entertaining look at the science of comfort. It shows how physics, chemistry and biology combine to explain how we experience our environment and determine what makes the buildings we live in comfortable (or not). In total, the series will comprise six videos.  The first video on acoustic comfort was launched on September 22.

The String Theory channel came online in May this year and broadcasts short videos of science experiments with a healthy dose of humour. The goal is to convey positive values associated with progress, make science accessible to a wider audience and become the leading internet platform on science and innovation. Saint-Gobain teamed up with String Theory at launch to raise awareness of science and technology and attract young people to careers in science and engineering.
