"Here at SciShow, we hate not knowing things."
Hank Green

SciShow is one of the Web Video Edutainment Shows hosted and created by Hank Green, known for being the younger half of the Vlogbrothers.

The show is divided up into different sections. "Infusion" talks about such popular topics as solar energy and climate change in great detail. "Dose" is a section of quick videos of obscure topics, such as Tardigrades and Foldit gamers. "News" is a weekly section devoted to quick news stories that have happened recently. "Breaking" is devoted to one breaking news story.

It's spawned three spinoff channels. SciShow Space, launched in April 2014, has three rotating hosts: Hank Green, Reid Reimers, and Caitlin Hoffmeister, and focuses on astronomy and other space-related information and news updates. SciShow Kids, launched in March 2015 as part of YouTube Kids, is hosted by Jessi Knudsen-Castañeda of Animal Wonders fame and features various kid-friendly topics with a particular focus on life science. SciShow Psych, launched in February 2017, is hosted by rotating hosts Hank Green and Brit Garner and explains aspects of psychology throughout history and the present.
