About the Speaker

Destin Sandlin is an American engineer best known for his educational video series, Smarter Every Day (SED), which is hosted on a YouTube channel of the same name launched in 2007.

Sandlin received his Bachelors of Science from the University of Alabama, where he studied mechanical engineering. Later he obtained a graduate degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Alabama in Huntsville.

Sandlin began posting educational videos in 2007, and his first video to reach one million views cleared that milestone on July 10, 2009. The video was about chicken-head tracking using chickens that Destin bought for his father as a demonstration. Because of its popularity that video retroactively had the Smarter Every Day label added to it. 

Sandlin formally launched Smarter Every Day (SED) On Apr 24, 2011 with a video titled Detonation vs Deflagration - Smarter Every Day 1. Smarter Every Day became the title for subsequent videos and the sole focus of his YouTube channel.

Episodes of Smarter Every Day revolve around scientific exploration and discovery. They feature Sandlin as host and narrator. Sandlin is fascinated by flight and space, and his Smarter Every Day video library reflects that.
