UNICOOS

Nació en Madrid en 1972. Cuando era pequeño le encantaban las películas de ciencia ficción porque alucinaba con los efectos especiales. Pero sobre todo le gustaban porque salía del cine haciéndose alguna pregunta. Quizá aquellas películas son las culpables de que decidiera estudiar Ingeniería de Sistemas de Telecomunicación. Cuando la crisis le dejó sin trabajo David decidió fundar una academia de estudios. Pero esa misma crisis impedía a muchos de sus alumnos pagarla y abandonaban sus clases, así que decidió abrir un canal de Youtube, Unicoos, por el que pudieran seguirlas. Ahora cuenta con un millón de suscriptores (acaba de recibir el “botón de oro Youtube”) y su canal es un referente en el mundo educativo y de divulgación científica de habla hispana, convirtiéndose en el primer canal de ciencia de España y uno de los tres más seguidos en lengua hispana. David Calle contribuye además con su canal, y ahora con su libro, a promocionar las vocaciones STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics)
