Awesome Science YouTube Channels for Kids

Welcome to another STEM Saturday! Every week we aim to share something related to science, technology, engineering and/or math. At the end of this post you’ll find more STEM ideas from the co-hosts and a linky where other bloggers can add STEM related activities!

Many times Caden will start asking questions about a topic, usually about animals and after I share with him what I know about that particular animal, we will search YouTube for cool videos that feature the animal to get more information. Since Caden is a visual learner watching videos is an awesome way to get him interested in a topic! While browsing YouTube I’ve come across some pretty awesome science channels that are great for all ages of kids! Most of these channels I haven’t heard of before stumbling across them, so I thought I’d share them with you all! So whether you have a young child interested in animals or an older school-aged kid I think you’ll find some awesome science YouTube channels below!
