Maths & Science


Numberphile — interesting and/or quirky mathematical concepts presented in an engaging and accessible manner by well-established mathematicians.

Plus Magazine — a very readable yet informative magazine for anyone interested in maths. There are articles, news of latest research, interviews, puzzles, and more!

Chalkdust Magazine — “a magazine for the mathematically curious” is their tagline. It is perhaps more friendly to the general public than Plus Mag, but that doesn’t mean it’s light on mathematical content.

General Science

Minute Physics — physics concepts explained in short videos with fun illustrations. What’s not to like? Their companion site Minute Earth is also really cool.

Sixty Symbols — physics videos from the University of Nottingham. For those who are particularly interested in astrophysics, also check out Deep Sky Videos, from the same team.

VSauce — one of the most popular educational YouTube channels. The topics presented and questions raised often involve a fascinating combination of scientific and philosophical inquiry.

Tom Scott — his Twitter profile says “I make things”. You’ll find short videos on a bewildering range of topics, touching on history, geography, politics, language and linguistics, computer programming, physics, popular culture and society, and more!
