About the course

"Investigate the nitrogen cycle through ASMR - a video phenomenon that uses close-up sounds, tapping, and soft speaking. Explore the various bacterial reactions that allow N2 nitrogen gas to be fixed into nitrates useable by animal life.

Via your favorite types of Youtube videos, travel through the cycles of the world. Learn processes from cellular respiration to water purification."
