Wikiexperiments project continues: Chemistry videos in glorious HD!
One of the most significant and renowned projects of Shared Knowledge have proceed to its completion this month. Wikiexperiments project by Shared Knowledge aimed at recording high-quality videos of systematically selected experiments for the purposes of illustrating important scientific concepts and phenomena in various sciences have started since September 2015 being organized and divided in conducting by a specific science such as physics, chemistry etc. Upon the successful completion of the first round of recordings of experiments in physics, this month the project proceeded to its second part - chemistry.
Chemistry experiments completed
With the cooperation previously established with the professor Vladimir Petrushevski, the second part of the project continued with recording of experiments at the Institute of Chemistry, at the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje.
Recordings have taken part during June and there were taken 20 high-definition videos of experiments conducted to demonstrate various chemical reactions. The experiments are described in Macedonian and English, and so far they are added to articles on the English Wikipedia, while in the next period they will be used for a numerous new appropriate articles which will be created on the Macedonian Wikipedia. Some of the experiments recorded would also found their way in other language editions too.
The full gallery of experiments can be found at Category:Chemistry experiments by Shared Knowledge.
