Welcome to the Minecraft Measurement Units Video Challenge!
Your Challenge (should you choose to accept it):
Create one or more video clips in Minecraft that teaches others about what the seven units of the International System of Measurement (SI) are or why they are important in a fun way.
Post a link to your completed videos in the comments on YouTube.
Possible eternal glory!
- The total running length of each clip should be no longer than 20 seconds.
- Only one SI unit should be featured per clip.
- Videos must be G-rated.
- Do your own work, please.
The seven base SI units are:
- Meter(m)—length,used for measuring the distance between things
- Second(s)—time, there are 60 of them in a minute
- Ampere(A)—an amount of electric current, quite shocking
- Candela(cd)—brightness, the amount of useful light (light humans can see by) an object emits
- Kelvin(K)—temperature, this unit tells you how hot or cold something is
- Kilogram(kg)—mass, a measure of the amount of matter an object has, related to, but not the same as, weight
- Mole(mol)—an Avogadro's number's worth of "entities," like a chemist's, as opposed to a baker's, dozen (One mole of something has 6.022 x 1023 atoms or molecules.)
