Supertasks

The Holiday Box has evolved! Now you can support Vsauce, your brain, Alzheimer’s research, and other YouTube educators by joining THE CURIOSITY BOX: a seasonal delivery of viral science toys made by Vsauce! A portion of all proceeds goes to Alzheimer’s research and our Inquisitive Fellowship, a program that gives money and resources directly to growing science channels here on YouTube! https://www.curiositybox.com
