Big Bang Theory
Produced by Twig, this animated video is an engaging and accessible introduction to the Big Bang and subsequent formation of the Universe.
It describes how, 13.7 billion years ago, the Big Bang produced an expanding Universe. Early on in its expansion, elements of hydrogen and helium were formed as the early Universe started to cool. These elements formed the building blocks of all other elements. As cooling continued, material condensed into nebulae, stars, galaxies and all the other cosmic bodies.
Suitable for secondary school students, the video is also a useful introduction for post-16 students.
