Science-to-go

For many of us, we seen to forget the basic scientific concepts we learn from school upon reaching adulthood. Sometimes we wonder how the world around us works and we either search about it on the internet or grab a science book. If ever you log on to the internet, I would like to recommend these Youtube channels that will give you a quick understanding on some of those scientific concepts.
