Education Clips

In this set we highlight the educational side of our collection. We look at sciences at every level of detail: the intricate interplay of the atoms and molecules that form the fabric of the world, the lives of the plants and animals that thrive on our living planet, and the grand and ordered dance of the Solar System around us.

Colourful Chemistry

Our collection from Rhys Lewis brings chemistry into focus, showcasing the bangs, pops, flames and colours of some classic experiments. All of these demonstrations reveal an important aspect of the chemistry of their ingredients, and have been designed and shot with educators in mind.

Mathematical Models

These mathematical animations show how complicated and beautiful patterns can arise from relatively simple equations. Using modern modelling techniques, Christian Koch's work shows how the behaviour of many individual particles and their connections can lead to large-scale effects that are visible in the world around us, from magnetic fields to earthquakes to vast star clusters.
