Talk Nerdy To Me is a webpage that is part of Huffington Post Online. It contains many fun and cool videos about a variety of science subjects. Below is a summary about it:

According to HuffPost senior science correspondent Cara Santa Maria, "science is humanity's most important tool for describing, interacting with, and understanding the nature of our reality. The world around us is rife with inspiration. Inside each of us there are tiny molecular machines that allow our hearts to beat, our bodies to stay warm, and our minds to wander. We are made up of the same ingredients as the stars."

Cara invites you to explore the science of the mundane and the magnificent in her video series, only found on HuffPost Science.

"Come on, talk nerdy to me."

This site is still active and has some wonderful resources. One of my most recent favourites includes the link to the "Big History Project". As per the description of the "Big History Project: It is a free online program for teachers and students that examines our past, explains our present, and imagines our future. It's a story about us. An idea that arose from a desire to go beyond specialized and self-contained fields of study to grasp history as a whole. This growing, multi-disciplinary approach is focused on high school students, yet designed for anyone seeking answers to the big questions about the history of our Universe.

The Big History Project is a joint effort between teachers, scholars, scientists, and their supporters to bring a multi-disciplinary approach to knowledge to lifelong learners around the world. Journey through nearly 14 billion years of history in this self-guided, six-hour version of Big History. You'll find every chapter full of great activities to keep you entertained and test your learning.
