It’s hard to believe, but the TED-Ed team is excited to have just passed the one-year mark for when we launched our YouTube Channel on March 12, 2012. And what a year it has been! In 365 days, we published over 100 TED-Ed Originals and nearly 100 TED Talks with over 16 million views total. And we have almost 100 additional projects in production!
This milestone would not be possible without the brilliant educators and talented animators who have contributed to the TED-Ed initiative, making curiosity-inspiring Lessons available to people all around the globe. These collaborators have put great efforts — and many late hours — into each Lesson. And it shows.
In honor of our first birthday, we’d like to celebrate our top 10 most-watched videos so far, on topics ranging from chemistry to Shakespeare to origami.
