I was commissioned by UBC to produce a series of 10 videos for their 3rd year Chemistry students. This was a pretty complicated project as my knowledge of basic chemistry was pretty lacking…ok, I knew pretty much nothing about chemistry (the last time I even looked at a bunsen burner was in grade 10). Ions, photomultiplier tubes, cations, electrons, etc. became my new language. Luckily I had a Grad Student and a Professor close at hand to act as translators and help with the process.
