'Twig Science' picked up awards at BETT and the Education Show. Sue Branson knows why
TwigWhen I first looked at Twig Science it was as part of the new resources that get sent to science departments throughout any academic year. I don’t always spend time evaluating them, as often the time is wasted and there is always precious little of it anyway! However, thank goodness I did.

Twig is presented as an online resource offering “outstanding short films on science”. We are always interested in new video content for the classroom and so I went to the website to take a look. Within a few clicks, I was mesmerised by its simple, clean-looking, vibrant pages that immediately caught my eye and made me want to delve deeper.
