Helping students of all ages discover the world of atoms through dance.
Join atomic physicists from Imperial College London and dance artists from The Place to learn about atoms and molecules in a creative and physical way.
After the two-minute introductory ‘Episode 0', there are six 20 to 30-minute-long films. In each, a scientific theory is explained by a physicist and explored creatively with a dance artist. Additional project ideas are suggested at the end of each episode.
Follow along at home or at school. If you’re a teacher, you may like to use the films to create your own lesson plans. Download the accompanying Elemental dances Handout.
