First things first, you may be wondering ‘why YouTube?’ We get it, when you think YouTube you probably think of it as a platform to watch influencers’ hauls and music videos, but YouTube can actually be a great resource that makes learning fun and easy. Video content is not only easy to consume, but a viewer can watch it as many times as they need to. And the thing we love most about YouTube? It’s also easy and fun to fall down the rabbit hole of science videos, and before you know it, you’re basically a genius! (Basically.)
You know how when you were in elementary school and it was time to learn something, such as the states in alphabetical order, you would be taught a song? Well, A Capella Science is kind of like that but about topics such as your molecular shape, gravity, and entropic time.
If you really want to dive into space, not literally, of course, then PBS Space Time is what you should be binging. Think space, astrophysics, the possibilities of sci-fi, and frankly anything else you could ever think of beyond the planet Earth. And don’t think for a second you need to have a deep understanding of science before you tune in, there is just as much content about basic science as there is complex content on space and time.
SciShow is a series hosted by Hank Green that explores the many realities of our universe such as how honey bees survive disasters, cold cases cracked by science, and how we feel pain.

Everyone wants to love physics, right? Well, now you can thanks to Walter Lewin! Dr. Lewin teaches physics at MIT, and now he teaches you too.
