10 Educational Youtube Channels For Kids

Educational YouTube channels for kids are becoming very popular form of learning these days.

And I am not surprised.

My kids tend to gravitate to YouTube before anything else, but I am not always thrilled with what they find.  These educational YouTube channels are being used in the classrooms by the teachers, at home by parents and of course kids love watching them because it’s so fun and easy to learn from.

Veritasium  is a vlog (video blog) about science, cool demonstrations, expert interviews. Talking about the pyramids and actually standing next to them takes teaching to a whole new level.

Simply put: cool physics and other sweet science.


The Spangler Effect

The guy behind the camera is a super cool science teacher. Things just happen to fizz, pop, smoke and explode, and before you know it, you’re a part of his learning experience. His passion is to find the most creative ways to make learning fun.

Methods might be unconventional, but the goal is to turn ordinary science experiments into unforgettable learning experiences. And when it happens, it’s called the Spangler Effect.

Our World is Amazing. Mind-blowing experiments and facts.



NOVA is the most-watched primetime science series on television reaching an average of five million viewers weekly. The NOVA website has been pioneering new forms of web-original content since it debuted in early 1996.


Make me Genius

It’s a youtube channel for younger kids. Videos are easy to watch, they are based on stories and cartoons. You might hear a different dialect and accent here and there, but I think it only adds to the education which is learning about new cultures.
