crash courseIt’s been truly exciting to watch the career arc of John and Hank Green over the years. Not only has John penned six books—several of which have debuted at the top of The New York Times bestseller list and received prestigious awards—he also produces highly entertaining video blogs with his brother. And we’re not the only ones who have become fans of their work. Our students love them too, particularly the videos they find on the duo’s Crash Course YouTube channel.

To date, John and Hank have put together 130 videos. Most of them are under 12 minutes in length and cover a wide range of subjects related to world history, literature, U.S. history, chemistry, ecology and biology. Although Crash Course is clearly targeting a student demographic, adults will find that they have much to learn from these two self-proclaimed “Nerdfighters.”

Below you’ll find a sample Crash Course video. If you like this, you’ll probably like the other 129 videos.
