"Why is the Solar System flat?" and lots of other cool science videos, for kids!
We’ve posted before about the importance of STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) education for our kids. Increasingly, jobs everywhere depend on an ability to create, embrace and deploy technology in new and innovative ways . One of the reasons we jumped at the chance to get involved with BRICKS 4 KIDZ® is that we share their passion for STEM Education – it is now our mission to be a leading provider of STEM Education to kids in NSW and the ACT.
So we’re constantly on the lookout for new resources that parents can employ to get kids interested in science. Just today we came across a great resource on YouTube, called YouTube EDU, and we wanted to share it here.
YouTube EDU features some of the most popular educational videos on the site. The videos are categorised by subject, from engineering to law, and by age group, from primary and secondary education to lifelong learning. It’s a one-stop shop for anyone looking for homework help, project research, or simply hoping to learn something new on a rainy day! Some of videos they are featuring today on their front page for primary and secondary students include World’s Roundest Object!, Why Do Venomous Animals Live In Warm Climates? (heavily featuring Australia of course!) and Safe Cracking with Richard Feynman.
But our favourite was this one, which we just watched with our six year old. She may not have fully understood it, but she definitely enjoyed it – and so did we!
Check out YouTube EDU. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
