MIT + K12 creates entertaining and educational videos on a wide range of STEM topics, including this great video on the transmission of wireless information. The videos are shared online and free to the public, which is in line with their mission to promote global science education.
Our Mission Is To Use MIT’s Unique Resources To Inspire The Inner Scientist In All Learners. We Believe Everyone Can Have Wonder For Our World – So We Create Fresh And Authentic Video Content That Entertains And Engages Just As Much As It Educates.
MIT+K12 Videos are made for students by students. We invite and train current MIT students to write and host webisodes about their favorite science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) topics for kids and kids-at-heart, webisodes that are free and accessible to anyone in the world. We seek to entertain and engage just as much as we seek to educate, meaning our episodes are more than simply lessons. These videos show a side of science different from what you might find in a textbook – everything from the physics of invisibility cloaks to motor control in humanoid robots – and make the resources that are unique to MIT more accessible and visible to a global audience. Most importantly, they’re hosted by MIT students who showcase a diverse set of interests, personalities, and backgrounds; who are relatable and fun and who dismiss the misconception that science is only for an elite and isolated population.
