I thought this lecture would be the basic level at schools like Stanford, but from the comments I understand that its not that normal for them too.... Strange

Channing Robertson encouraged Elizabeth Holmes to found Theranos and invested in that company which is responsible to one of the biggest fraud of Silicon Valley startups in history!
Alex19781986 (6 days ago)
Elizabeth Holmes took this course herself, then she dropped out from Stanford

I watched this when I was in high school. Now I’m working as a process engineer for like two years now.
Frank Gutowski (18 days ago)
This is the clown who enabled the Theranos scam.

It is rather empty, disappointing for me. Jump to 26 mins to hear something about chemistry.

Really nice story but i want know about chemical engineering. I am from Kathmandu, Nepal and i just completed my master degree in chemistry from TU. Seriously i want to study Master degree in chemical engineering. what is eligibility criteria for MS in chemical engineering? Can i get full scholarship in MS of chemical engineering? If possible please reply in my comment. Thank you

what are those ''TAS''?? and does anybody know the professor's website that he is yalking? sorry for my english jeje.. i need to improve it..

Christian Garcia TAs: teaching assistants for the professor. They have office hours where students can come to ask them to explain, they also help the prof. correct exams

I'd say he is really negative and disgruntled imo.

I'm in junior H , and in my senior we can choose already what we want I'm thinking of doing this ! it seem interesting... but I'm not the person who get high grades on math nor science ( cause I'm interested on outer space more than our normal everyday life science) I'm thinking of reading this summer .___. starting to zero... like read all about chemistry yeah I dream big x'D I wish I could do it
Zulma Mejia (10 months ago)
See, I'm having this debate right now: whether to follow the career I want or following a career with more job opportunities.
TrancEndingMedia (1 year ago)
Do NOT do it for jobs! Thats the dumbest reason ever. Do it for that passion. I am almost 10years older than you and just finding out i have a love for biochemistry that was blocked out by wanting to pursue thing for a 'job'. The best job to have is what you have a passion for. Thats why the professor is soo awesome.
No Thank You (2 years ago)
You most surely can go into a job to do with outer space. If that's your thing I would say to pursue it and see certain jobs that appeal to you more than others and stick with the ones that you have fun studying. And as long as you like what you're learning and know you need it for what you want to study then I don't see something as "I'm not that good at math and science'" as something that should stop you from studying what you want to learn !!!!

Stanford is bad school because they rejected my application :(
Megs (1 year ago)
Oxford rejected me and to this day I can't stand that name, it hurts.
SoldierOfAbraham (2 years ago)
+Irving Ceron Being rejected from Stanford does not make you dumb. Going on YouTube and claiming Stanford is a bad school because the rejected your application, however, does make you dumb.

I was expecting, you know, like above 62,273 grand, a bit of google stock, your soul, the foreskin of your firstborn son, hair from your firstborn daughter, and maybe your virginity if you still have one, plus tax, shipping, and handling, and a tip. ..... but 20$ will do!

Oh God, this guys is great! I have chemical engineering in Slovak, but it's so boring with the teacher. This guy kept my attention and he's even funny.
I wil, be studying Chemical Engineering at the Univsrsity of Cape Town in the Year 2016. Yeah those equations in High School will be very useful to Improve the outlook on the Chemical Engineering.

+Kevin Pereira hi Kevin , I thought I was a good student because my grades during hi school were high. Ok, I was an international student so grading in my country is based on percentage which is way different from the US grading system. However, once I was indulged into chemical engineering I struggled so tough to survive. My college was tough, professors were tough grading. Honestly, I used to get bad grades even though I had been studying a lot, but I wasn't maybe studying on the right way or I didn't know what part should I be concentrating on. I'm sorry don't get me wrong, I didn't mean to discourage you, but I'm just telling you my experience so you avoid future mistakes and be on a good start on chemical engineering For your high school grades concern, whatever they were, you will get the chance to be majored in chemical engineering under conditioned acceptance if your high school grade didn't qualify you such as getting B & two Cs as a minimum in ( physics , calc and chemistry)
Kevin Pereira (3 years ago)
+Mudaid Man Can you tell me what your grades were in high school. I'm also striving to be a chemical engineer, and I'm currently a junior in high school.

Im probably going to study chem. e. in the future, now I will probably choose maths and chemisrty to study in high school, my grandpa was a high manager in our ex-national oil processing state owned company, my father made programs to help him calculate fractional disstilations on some very first computers and now owns an IT company. I think I will be interested in conservating energy or polymers. I have no idea why I wrote this o.O
