Mrs AK

I have particularly enjoyed watching the short videos. They are beautifully presented, delivering a lot of information in a clear and concise way. I have learnt a great deal about a wide range of subjects from innovations to chemistry and engineering to name just a few. Suitable for secondary school to adults. I loved it. Please make another one!!!
