GO Tube videos

The GO Tube video library gives curious minds access to discover the world and pivotal innovations that have changed it throughout history. 

Children can choose from hundreds of videos covering a variety of exciting topics from key figures to animals, and even inventions like drones and the earliest aircrafts.

Interactive World Maps

Upon viewing the world map, the site’s interactive features enable children to click-and-learn. The globe’s continents, countries and its cities are all free for them to explore.
