I Love Science Videos!

Welcome to SciMi’s YouTube Roundup, where we’re sharing with you our favorite science videos we’re finding on YouTube. I mean, really… who doesn’t love a YouTube break during the work day?

  1. 5 Dinosaur Myths You Probably Thought Were True

    Why we love it: We loved Jurassic Park, and we’re always looking for fun “Did you know…” trivia to show off in front of friends at the next dinosaur-themed party… (What? You don’t have those?)


  2. Why Do You Always Get Sick After Final Exams?

    Why we love it: We’re now planning to get more sleep and overdose on Vitamin C before the holidays so we can actually enjoy the break. This video is worth a share with your students.


  3. Why Do Dogs Smell Each Other's Butts?

    Why we love it: We’ve always wondered about this. Admit it. We’re just happy to have some quick answers.



  4. How Not To Get Stuck In Traffic

    Why we love it: Living in Austin, WE HATE TRAFFIC! And we’re constantly looking for ways to avoid it. While I doubt I can get the person in front of me to stop snapchatting on the road, this video does provide really interesting information on how/why traffic jams occur in the first place.

I seriously ask my dog on walks why he NEEDS to smell other dogs like that. Guess I know now... Good videos!
