As much as I like it to be different, very few times I find myself excited or impressed by anything I encounter while surfing the web. Most of what is out there is either conspiracy theories, political rants, lots and lots of stupidity and non-sense discussions, or uncountable amounts of crap (not to say a worse word). of course, there are cat videos to save the day, but the Internet most of the times seems like a wasteland of the worse mankind stupidity can produce.
But, once for a while, I stumble upon a hidden gem like the Ninja Nerd Science Youtube channel. Those young “nerds” (as they call themselves) are so good and well versatile explaining the complexities of science and medical subjects that their work should be mandatory to teach teachers on how it should be done!
Imagine that one boring subject that was delivered for the most boring teacher you ever had! Everyone encounters those sleep-ignitors at least once or twice at school, college, or university. Well, these youngsters are quite the opposite, and despite still dressing as students (wearing t-shirts and backflipped hats) they deliver amazingly interesting lectures that are guarantee to keep you awake and alert, surely delivering the proposed knowledge in a so organic way that it will make you feel like if you already knew all that by heart!
On this page, I am bringing four of their lectures about the Coronavirus, but they cover many other subjects in their other videos. I strongly suggest anyone check out and subscribe to their channel. It is worthwhile!
Enjoy the education you will get from these videos below and pay them a visit and share because they truly deserve it!

A small background about the Ninja Nerd Science Team
The name of the presenter is Zach Murphy, who is also a co-founder of the Ninja Nerd Science. He is responsible for preparing and presenting the scientific information, which makes to the whiteboard thanks to the drawing talents of Kristin Popovice (a Registered Nurse) and is turned in to amazing videos by her husband Rob Beach (a Physical Therapy student), who films Murphy’s hour-long presentation and edits it.
Since 2017 the trio has spent nights and weekends producing what are now nearly 300 video lectures on almost everything the body does, and most recently, about the Coronavirus! Check out their Youtube Channel!
Whatever you do, try your best to support their initiatives. Science is the way out of this pandemic and the future of our society. It is what brought us from the stone-age to the (mis)information-age and surely the one thing that will get us to our future!
