when you remember back when you went to school and think about if you really enjoyed learning? Especially when I remember the videos that I’ve seen back then, this was, to say at least, boring. But yesterday at UX Munich I first heard of »kurzgesagt« – a team of young people doing science education on YouTube in an interesting way. For example, learn how the solar system works in seven minutes. If you have some time, just take it and watch some of these beautifully created animated videos.
