I would like to announce that this year’s implementation of the Wikiexperiments project has started today with the first round of filming chemistry experiments. This project aims to record high-quality videos of systematically selected experiments for the purposes of illustrating important scientific concepts and phenomena in various sciences.
Since the start of the project in September 2015, a total of 153 experiments in multiple fields of chemistry, physics and biology have been produced, which are used across articles on more than 60 language editions of Wikipedia, as well as in educational materials on Wikibooks. All videos of the experiments are voiceless and contain English depictions in order to ease the translation into other languages and encourage adding subtitles.
If you have ideas on how this project can be improved, including new scientific areas in which experiments can be produced or new methods to use the videos on the Wikimedia projects, you are welcome to join the discussion and share your thoughts.
