Science is all about explaining the observable world in terms of invisible, imperceptible worlds—too small, too big, or too strange to experience directly.

For example, we can only explain taste by imagining molecules of different shapes fitting into different pockets in larger molecules (taste receptors) in cells on the tongue. How can we imagine that?

This site shows ‘what, why, and how’ to visualise models of imperceptible worlds and phenomena at the cosmic, geological, cellular, molecular, and quantum levels, required for a deep understanding of science.

You will also see how to use the latest cognitive science research on the factors determining how the brain perceives, processes, stores and retrieves audiovisual information, to inform our teaching with visualisation.
