With the Sci-Vi initiative, we continuously experiment and investigate formats and methods for visual research communication

During the last years The Animation Workshop/VIA UC have co-produced several animations to help disseminate science and research in very different fields. We collect this experience and productions under the Sci-Vi umbrella and will in the following years continue to help new productions into the world.

TED-Ed Animated lessons

The Sci-Vi department cooperates with TED-Ed to create better communication about all kinds of science. We believe that in order to develop in the best way as humanity, our choices and actions, together with ethical considerations, must be based on knowledge and research. The TED-Ed Animations are short, animated videos about ideas that spark the curiosity of learners everywhere and has become an award-winning education platform that serves millions of teachers and students around the world every week. The TED-Ed video library has more than 1,000 animated TED-Ed Originals and reaches nearly 700M learners worldwide every year.
