The Kid Should See This

The Magic Roundabout in Swindon, England

Watch more with these video collections:

Five small roundabouts placed around one large one… this is Swindon’s Magic Roundabout and it’s been going strong since it was built in 1972. Wired explains how this multi-directional traffic circle works.

Tom Scott also visited the roundabout in 2015 and used it to discuss flocks of birds: Swindon’s Terrifying Traffic Circle and Emergent Behaviour.

Next, which is faster: 4-Way Stop vs the Roundabout? Plus, see the world’s craziest intersection: Meskel Square, Addis Ababa.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.
