Abstract: Science is finding its way into new corners of the internet thanks to the flexibility of social sharing platforms, and platforms like are making these incursions interactive thanks to built-in tools for chat, polling, and other active learning techniques. This platform also has the potential to be self-funding; the Twitch community is willing and culturally accustomed to financially support content they like through built-in donation mechanisms. In this poster, we review the potential of for science education, and use the CosmoQuest platform as an example of building toward success.
