Science channels explode onto YouTube

Google is investing in education and science, with five new YouTube channels dedicated to mathematics, astronomy, chemistry, physics – and spectacular demonstrations.

Now, in a move away from its traditional user-generated content, YouTube has recently announced its first venture into original content. So let’s take a look at what YouTube will be offering in the way of science communication.

The fact that 10 of the channels in this announcement are educational channels is encouraging. While the serious money may be in channels such as Red Bull and WWE, Google is investing in education, too. In fact, half of those educational channels on offer are science-related.
