But Why?: How Does An Engine Work?

Seven-year old Sawyer wants to know: how does an engine work?

We learn about chainsaws from Ashleigh Belrose, an instructor the Center for Technology in Essex, Vermont.

Ashleigh teaches high school students interested in forestry management here in Vermont, where the podcast is based. One of the things she teaches them is how to use a chainsaw. A chainsaw has a simple engine.


But Why is a show led by you, kids!

You ask the questions and we find the answers. It’s a big interesting world out there. On But Why, we tackle topics large and small, about nature, words, even the end of the world.
