How to build a huge LEGO house – James May’s Toy Stories

Above, a preview from Episode 6 of James May’s Toy Stories, and it's a great one (if not a bit spoiler-ish). Watch as James May prepares to spend the night in a LEGO-built house. The really interesting part of t...

How the Aurora Borealis is created

Produced by forskning.no in collaboration with the Department of Physics at the University of Oslo, this is a brilliantly simple explainer about How the Aurora Borealis is created.

Flottille: Unfolding micro-origami by Etienne Cliquet

These small, slowly-unfolding, precisely cut pieces of silver paper -- a sort of micro-origami -- are by French artist Etienne Cliquet. The kid was riveted. Just two to three centimeters wide, Flotille explores both a...

An Eiffel Tower made from Kapla Blocks

Benjamin Crouzier is clearly a Kapla aficionado; his YouTube channel is full of amazing videos like this one: Tour Eiffel en Kapla. And not only are his structures well built, but some of them are set up to fall like...

A Mouth, Arm, and Eye, Rube Goldberg-style – Kuratorium

Commissioned by Kuratorium Aargau (who, I believe, provide grants for work in the visual arts) and directed by Crictor/Rafael Sommerhalder, these three cause-and-effect mini-productions are great little anticipation b...

The gyroscope

It’s true: the narration sounds a bit like a 1960s instructional video. But! Look! It’s a gyroscope! They’re so fascinating that they give this video a lot of force and momentum. How do we use gyrosc...

Chladni Plate: Sand Vibration Patterns

Hey kids! Go rest your hands on a speaker playing loud music. Feel the sound vibrations? Good. Now you might want to adjust your volume for this one. Sound frequencies produce a variety of incre...

Where In The World Are You? (14000 Dominoes)

Like domino chain reactions? Then watch FlippyCat — So. Many. Videos. And above and beyond, their vids make a point of showing how things fall by accident, get cleaned up, and have to be rebuilt… again and again: ...

The Slinky Drop in slow motion – Veritasium

Slinky Drop in Slow Motion! How does a slinky fall when extended by its own weight and then released? We were surprised by the answer — and especially by what the answer looks like. Veritasium's Derek Muller mee...

Pendulum waves demonstration

A Harvard Natural Sciences Lecture Demonstration of pendulum waves. A physics classic.  Thanks, imuptoolate.

Cobra Weave Exploding Stick Bomb: a popsicle stick chain reaction

Whoa, how did we miss this?! This is a popsicle stick weave chain reaction called the “Cobra Weave Exploding Stick Bomb,” and you can do it yourself following an Instructables How T...

Quantum Levitation: A mind-blowing demonstration and explanation

Quantum levitation. “Superconductivity locked in space,” a phenomenon known as quantum trapping. You can see more details in this Quantum Levitation video by Quantum Researcher Boaz Almog: Mind. Blo...

Coalescence cascade: The bouncing droplet in slow motion

What is a coalescence cascade? When droplets of water contact the surface of water, it doesn't actually get absorbed straight away like you may think it does. What happens is it gradually bounces up and down until ...

e-volo: The first manned flight with an electric multicopter

At the end of October 2011, Thomas Senkel of e-volo made the first manned flight with an e-powered multicopter at an airstrip in the southwest of Germany. The flight lasted one minute and 30 seconds, after which the c...

Murmuration (of Starlings)

We’ve been looking for a good murmuration of starlings video for a month or two, but had never quite connected with the ones we’d found. And then we saw this one! Two more inform...

Soap bubble turbulence: Rainbows spin on the surface of a bubble

The soap film is a half-bubble of about 7 cm diameter on the top of a plastic glass. The system is illuminated by light diffusing from the bottom of the glass. The camera is placed on one side of the bubble ...

Levitating frogs using magnetic fields

Flying Frogs! Sort of… The short answer is that living things — even humans — can levitate when a ridiculously strong/large magnet is used to repel the frog’s atoms’...

Gravity Defying Cat – The Slow Mo Guys

Cats are nimble creatures, we know. But slow them down to 2,500 frames per second (100 times slower), and they look like they defy gravity!

Not finding what you're looking for? A few suggestions:
• Fewer words might give better results. Look up cats instead of funny cats.
• No need to search with the words videos or for kids included.
• Use related words: If searching for iceberg isn't working, try ice or glacier.
• Is everything spelled correctly?
• Browsing topics might help, too!
