The academic world is buzzing with a new scientific revelation and in typical YouTube fashion, the 'Sonnet on a Higgs' gives a talented observer's two cents on the matter.
A short 40-second video animation accompanies the 14-line poem. Using rhyming prose, it educates those who are not quite familiar with what a Higgs particle is or what its discovery means in the simplest of terms. The cute picture tutorial that frames the poem makes the otherwise dry and boring scientific lecture a pleasant experience to be enjoyed by all ages.
The poem and animation-fused educational video concept could be a breakthrough in how the future of learning is going to go. Similar to the video style of the massively popular Khan Academy, the 'Sonnet on a Higgs' spot represents a change in the way we synthesize content.
