The internet has become a very significant part of our daily lives. With videos, maps, news, and social media it has become our main source of information and entertainment. It is the place where you donate to charities, and also the place where you buy groceries when you're feeling lazy. The internet can be used for many purposes. One of its benefits is video sharing and viewing. There are vlogs, meme compilations, gaming videos, songs, makeup tutorials and all kinds of videos which are shared and viewed everyday.
There's also one important category which I especially like, and that is educational and scientific videos. These explain world issues, psychology, biology, maths etc. and their visuals and audio are both engaging and informative. There are a few science channels that upload videos not for profit but just for the sake of spreading information and awareness. Such channels rely on donations from individuals and charities. An example of such a channel is Kurzgesagt, a German animation studio which uploads animated educational content on YouTube. Their animations are simple and easy to understand. They have videos on everything- from the European Union to whether organic food is actually better for you! Another such channel would be Veritasium which is slightly different and explains concepts more comprehensively. The videos are in more of a vlog format with the creator holding a camera and going to places where he carries out experiments and analyses of the area. Mark Rober is another science channel in which an ex-NASA employee performs fun scientific experiments sometimes in his backyard and sometimes in the middle of the ocean. All of these channels have a huge viewership with millions of subscribers and nearly a billion views in total each. Science channels are becoming increasingly popular and are important in order to spread awareness about science topics in a fun and entertaining way.
Watching science videos can be very interesting and a good way to pass your free time. I personally really like the channels I mentioned, especially Kurzgesagt, and I’d recommend you check out their videos.
