Charlie talks stars

Charlie McDonnell is an adorable young man who has an amazingly popular video series he does on YouTube. His latest is a quick primer on stars, and why they’re awesome:

I have to say, that’s pretty good! Accurate, fast, fun, and adorable. Did I already say “adorable”? Well, he is.

He has other videos in his Fun Science, like ones on sound, light, and the Moon. I can easily see these being shown in classrooms; kids will like ‘em, and if they like something, they’re more likely to let it sink in.

And that’s the point.
