Learning science does not have to be difficult! Kids are natural hands-on learners, and they will love learning science when they see it applied in real-life situations. As a result, it’s critical to use movies and animated content to bring science to life and transform it into compelling learning opportunities both in and out of the classroom. As educators and teachers, we’ve seen how YouTube videos can turn dull classes into fun and interactive learning activities, especially when combined with other interactive tools like PlayPosit and Edpuzzle.
