Assignment: Scientific visualisation

Create a video explaining a scientific concept.

Suggested techniques

This could be presented as a lecture, a case study, a debate, or a documentary.

Alternatively, take a more unusual approach. This 12-year old student presented the cell as a series of interlinked rooms in a haunted house, with each organelle of the cells as a monster they had to get through.




Intersperse the presentation with still images and video if appropriate. Video can be sourced externally or created with Moviestorm.

For teachers: benefits to students

  • The student has to think creatively about the concept and how to present it clearly. This promotes a deep understanding of the concept and makes it more interesting.
  • Adding multimedia content enables the student to approach the subject in a richer way than just using written text and still images.


  • Ages 12+
  • Suitable for solo or group work
