Secondary Science – YouTube Science

Science teachers – what are your favourite Science YouTube clips?

I’m sure lots of you are already using YouTube clips in the classroom to illustrate Science concepts; there are so many out there worth making use of.   Here are some that we like, including this great one of Nitrogen Triiodide Contact Explosive at 3000 frames per second and Ball Lightning In A Microwave, both from the Chemistry team at the University of Southampton.
