Veritasium is a science video blog which aims to present topics in all areas of science from the simplest to the most complex. The goal is to make scientific ideas clear, accessible, and interesting. Veritas is Latin for truth, and the ending ‘ium’ makes it into an element - the element of truth.
The idea for Veritasium began as a ‘word of the day’ for science so people interested in science can learn about new ideas in short, comprehensible video segments. These short films are also ideal for students, teachers, and schools as they are a free resource on a range of topics. Some films include experiments that can be tried at school or at home. Others include experiments with specialized apparatus that would be difficult to observe otherwise.
