Just How Small is an Atom?

Just how small are atoms? And what’s inside them? The answers turn out to be astounding, even for those who think they know. This fast-paced animation uses spectacular metaphors (imagine a blueberry the size of a football stadium!) to give a visceral sense of the building blocks that make our world.

Lesson by Jonathan Bergmann (http://flippedlearning.org/), animation by Cognitive Media (http://www.cognitivemedia.co.uk/).


Oh daylight rise! Atoms are dancing,
Souls, lost in ecstasy, are dancing. 
I'll whisper in your ear where the 
dance will take you. 
All atoms in the air, in the desert, 
They are all like madmen, each atom, 
happy or miserable, 
Is Passionate for the sun of which 
nothing can be said. 

Rumi
