The Kid Should See This

The internet abounds with high-quality educational videos that could be great for kids, but sifting through the chaff to find the wheat can become overwhelming. The Kid Should See This (TKSST) helps solve this quandary by "connect[ing] busy teachers and parents to a growing library of smart, short, and super-cool, 'not-made-for-kids, but perfect for them' videos that can be watched in the classroom or together at home." TKSST was founded in 2011 by Rion Nakaya, a video producer by training who curates this resource's content with the help of her two children, who are currently 8 and 11 years of age. Here, visitors will find a collection of over 4,000 short videos that are "selected to contribute to a kid-friendly corner on the internet that doesn't underestimate what children can learn or what they might be interested in." The videos cover a wide range of topics, all of which can easily be browsed and searched via categories on the main page. TKSST places special emphasis on STEAM topics, particularly those that "are often misunderstood, like evolution, climate change science, and clean energy solutions," and it also aims to spotlight diversity in STEM fields.
