Animation fans and educators may appreciate Life Noggin, a YouTube channel that uses short 2D animated videos to answer questions and offer explanations on scientific topics. In a style reminiscent of brightly colored 8-bit video games, Life Noggin bills itself as "an animated and educational web show designed to teach you all about your awesome life and the brain that makes you able to live it." Videos are typically three to four minutes in length, and their hundreds of episodes cover all manner of playful and serious topics, ranging from outer space (e.g. "Could We Build A Planet From Scratch?") to inside the human body (e.g. "How Exactly Do You Hear Things?"), and everywhere in between (e.g. "What Would Happen if All the Bugs Died?"). Each easily digestible video includes a lengthy list of sources in its description. Life Noggin was created in 2014 by Ian Dokie, Pat Graziosi, and Jared Oban and was nominated for a Shorty Award in the STEM category.
