10 youtube channels every science teacher needs to be aware of (part 1)

Over the last few years I found youtube to be invaluable in my teaching and learning toolkit. There are not many lessons that cant have a decent youtube clip embedded into it, or a flipped learning activity based around a youtube video. I imagine most science teachers are aware of most of these, but they are well worth checking out to help engage learners in this modern world. In no particular order – part 1 channels include:

  1. Lammas Science – In my opinion the best resource out there.
  2. ASAP Science – another brilliant, quality modern resource. 
  3. Smarter Every Day – can be used for tutor time stand alone videos 
  4. Veritasium – Quality videos covering a wide range of topics 
  5. Ted Ed – Great talks,  mostly under 5 minutes covering most topics
  6. Periodic Videos – Brilliant chemistry videos
  7. Minute Physics – not all a minute long, but snappy and detailed.
  8. SciShow – Hank and crew for the crashcourse! Also great for tutortime 
  9. Crashcourse – I find more detailed /In depth than SciShow. Covers more than Science.
  10. V sauce – Lots of subjects here. Again good tutor time videos.

Part 2 to come soon…
