SciShow is a family of YouTube channels (including SciShowSciShow SpaceSciShow Psych, and SciShow Kids). We make videos about science. News, history, particle physics, chemistry, biology, psychology, you name it. Our goal is to capture the awesomeness of this bizarre universe and make it easy for everyone to understand and enjoy.


SciShow is expensive. It’s easy to make the world seem interesting because the world is interesting. But it’s hard to really drill down deep into the really weird, peculiar, surprising bits that (usually) only professional scientists are talking about. For us, that’s where the real juice is, and that takes time, especially if you want to get it right.

For the last two years, around 50% of SciShow’s budget has been paid for by crowdfunding. We do everything we can to keep our costs low, but you can’t skimp on science. So we need your help. Plus, you get stuff!
