    I would like to share some websites that I found interesting:

    Youtube.com/edu : this particular link will only show educational video results when you type on the search bar and if you type "trend" or "topic" after the initial website , it'll release news or popular videos.

    http://www.newton.dep.anl.gov : this website has archives of all scientific inquiries and helpful for people who have dying curiosities about science and other fields. Most of all, it's answered by real scientists who volunteered.

    Photo2text.com : Yes, this particular site allows users to upload their images (>1MB) and convert into written text that draws the image. I thought it was cool and fun.
