The Top 25 Science YouTube Channels




NASA's mission is to pioneer the future in space exploration, scientific discovery and aeronautics research.

Minute Physics

Simply put: cool physics and other sweet science.

The Science Channel

The Science Channel features the best science videos all compiled into one long playlist.


SciShow is a channel dedicated to exploring science topics in simple and fun ways. No subject matter seems to be off-limits, and they’re all explained in such a way that you are guaranteed to be entertained.

Periodic (Table of) Videos

The Periodic Table Of Videos is a YouTube channel that set out on a mission: to create a video for each of the 118 elements in the periodic table. It also includes seeing how different chemicals react with each other… which is always fun.


Veritasium is a video blog all about science, and once again the range of topics explored is phenomenal. Experiments are carried out, misconceptions are laid to rest, and science is explained through the power of song.

Bill Nye- The Science Guy

This channel is sadly no longer being updated either but it’s worth including in order to introduce Nye to a wider audience. He keeps you engrossed as he offers introductions to some complicated subjects.

Sick Science!

Steve Spangler’s channel Sick Science! features simple experiments that can be done by anybody at home with no special equipment or training. This is science in its most practical form, showing how it affects us on a daily basis.


AsapSCIENCE is a YouTube channel offering a weekly dose of science-based edutainment.




Vsauce isn’t a YouTube channel wholly dedicated to science, but it deserves its place on this list because when it does do science it does it phenomenally well.

Smarter Every Day

One of the great things about the Smarter Everyday channel is its multidisciplinary approach to science. Apart from Physics (rockets, liquid rope coil and helicopter mechanics), this channel also tackles zoology (strange spiders, scorpions, and the list goes on) and other experiments that can make you appreciate the beauty of science.

Google Science Fair

A great place for students to learn about science.

The Spangler Effect
