Love tech and science?  There are some great channels on YouTube to enhance your learning, make you go "huh," or give you some fun facts at your fingertips!  I like to subscribe to YouTube channels and flip through my subscriptions every couple of weeks and learn something new. 

Here are a few of my favorites:

Science and Tech on YouTube

TedtalksDirector:
Technology, education and design talks from all over the world.  This channel is sort of the "best of."

ASAPScience:
Weekly doses of science and fun.  They answer questions like weird ways to burn 200 calories, and the science of goosebumps.
BigThink:
Not strictly science and tech, although they interview interesting folks like Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Andrew Weil, Mary Roach, etc.
Vihart:
Vi Hart is a mathematician at the Khan Academy.  She publishes on geometry, patterns and is a self-professed "mathemusician."
MinuteEarth:
Science in one minute!
The Brain Scoop:
By Emily, from the Field Museum in Chicago
MAKE:
DIY technology at home from the founders of Make Magazine
