11. Maddie Moate, Earth Unplugged
Maddie is the awesome woman in the Earth Unplugged videos, which explore the beauty of (you guessed it) Earth. There’s basically a million videos, so make some free time before you open that page.
12. Elise Andrew, I F*cking Love Science
Yep, your favorite Facebook page is on YouTube now. You’re welcome.
13. Rebecca Watson
Rebecca Watson talks about all sorts of things, including Carl Sagan, which is obviously delightful.
14. Alex Dainis, Bite Sci-zed
Alex covers it all, from why we talk with our hands to cannibalism to how your body digests a hamburger.
15. Amy Shira Teitel
Amy teaches us about space!
16. Joanne Manaster
Ever wondered what it was like to freeze a gummi bear in liquid nitrogen? Of course you did. Then this channel is for you. Approachable and fun.
17. Jessica King, FieldNotes
Jessica is awesome and likes to talk about Anthropology and Geology!
18. Meg Rosenburg, True Anomalies: Tales from the History of Science
True Anomalies is the Science Video version of PhD Comics, a website that will suck your life away if you’re in academia. The channel has a similar effect.
19. Ella, Sci-Files
Science videos from one of the most intelligent young women I’ve ever seen ever.
20. Dr. Kiki, This Week in Science
Fun and entertaining weekly science updates with three scientists, two of whom are ladies!
21. Boonsri, Elemental
Elemental is a channel for “DIY Science”. Boonsri creates a lot of awesome videos with clever experiments from a variety of people, such as “Using Video Games, This Scientist Keeps Memories Alive.”
22. Nicole Sharp, Eff Yeah Fluid Dynamics
I feel that this one is pretty self-explanatory, but if you’re wondering, this channel is all about “celebrating the physics of all that flows”. The videos are really, really mesmerising.
23. Allison Jack, Agricultural Science
Allison Jack focuses on sustainable agriculture, which is legitimately super interesting. She posts a lot of lectures and conference talks.
24. Katie McGill, The Physics Factor
Katie is a Physics PhD student at Cornell University and teaches us about physics, but at a level everyone (not only PhD students) can understand.
25. Amanda Aizuss, iTalkApple
iTalkApple is a YouTube channel about all things Apple and Technology. Amanda posts Mac/iOS tutorials, app demos, unboxings, and reviews.
26. Emily Eifler, BlinkPopShift
Emily Eifler is hilarious and talks on technological issues all across the realm, so even the not-so-technologically savvy of us can understand (but I bet even people on Ali’s level would enjoy!). I like this video where she talks about gif artists!
27. Jeri Ellsworth
I’m not going to pretend like I know
most any of what Jeri is talking about, but she documents her science and engineering experiments and I like it!
Hundreds of open-source projects you can make at home. HUNDREDS. Also, lots of good demos of products and answers to your technological and engineering questions.
ViHart is freaking hilarious. And genius.
30. Saramoira Shields, Mathematigal
Saramoira only has a few videos, but her “I’m A Math Major” video is worth watching, definitely.
To be honest, I kind of gasped when I saw that LookingGlassUniverse’s first video set was titled “Understanding Quantum Mechanics.” Then I watched almost an hour of her videos and understood quantum mechanics, knowledge which I fully intend to bust out at parties. So. If you’re the kind of person who thinks quantum mechanics would be totally understandable if we just included cute illustrated pictures of cats, this is for you.
Can anyone think of any we missed? Share your favorites!
