The first episode of Animated Science project describes the scientific method and each of the phases that compose it.
The main character observes the phenomenon that is going to be analysed, in this case the growth of a plant and factors affecting it. First, he makes a hypothesis. Then, together with his partners, he designs an experiment to prove the hypothesis. The first episode is centred on the experimentation phase, in which characters develop different experiments that lead them to the analysis of results, which is the end of the episode.
Claudi Mans, Emeritus Professor of Chemical Engineering from the University of Barcelona, has given scientific advice on the creation of the series of episodes. He has validated the development of stories to guarantee the correct transfer of scientific contents into visual language.
Episodes are available in Catalan, Spanish and English.
