{Review} Brain Bubble TV

Brain Bubble TV is a YouTube channel that contains 60 second educational clips. New clips are published every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Themed compilations of 40 to 60 clips can be downloaded via their website.

From the Brain Bubble TV website:

All of our Brain Bubble video clips are professionally narrated and produced by the Emmy Award-winning production team at Venture Media.

Venture Media is a leading non-fiction media and documentary production company founded in 1979. Our company has produced informational broadcast series and documentaries for Discovery Channel, Discovery Latino, Travel Channel, Armed Forces Radio & Television Service, the National Park Service, the US Navy, Readers Digest Home Media, Knowledge TV, the Just The Facts Learning Series, and many others. Over the past 35 years our writers, producers, directors, and artists have won dozens of Emmy Awards, Addy Awards, Telly Awards, and numerous accolades from film festivals and foundations.

In the 1990s, we pioneered the concept of “short attention span theater” informational video clips that both educate and entertain in a short :60-second timeframe. Updating the idea for our Brain Bubble YouTube channel and website was a natural fit.

These clips remind me of Brain Pop. They are full of fun trivia and little-known facts. They are perfect for future Jeopardy players of America.

I try to limit how much we use video media for school but I can see these being a fun morning addition routine. I wish they were tagged for easier searching so I could plug them into specific weeks of CC material. I also wish there were more science-themed clips.

On the plus side, all the videos can be accessed for free at the YouTube channel so you really have nothing to lose! Check them out and see what you think.
