Endless questions
and 40 videos
to celebrate curiosity

 

NEMO Science Museum celebrates its 100th anniversary, by sparking curiosity with events, demonstrations and experiments.

 

They also launched a website for their birthday, where the museum invites all people of the Netherlands to be their most curious self: asking an endless amount of questions about an endless amount of things.

These questions can be submitted on the website and will be answered by a team of scientists. And some questions are accompanied by one of these videos!

Why are soap bubbles never square? Is poop always brown? How many atoms do you need to see a color?

 

In total 40 video’s were made, of which 25 show an experiment and 15 an expert explaining something. All experiments can also be done at home, at school, with friends or family. All videos are aimed to spark curiosity and get people to ask even more questions.

Why are dog years different to human years? Do babies fart before they are born? How does Wi-fi work?

 

My role in this project was to come up with fun experiments based on the send-in questions, and oversee the creative process of producing the 40 videos. This meant a lot of experimenting, testing, writing scripts, art directing on set and guiding the edit.
