Explaining the theory of evolution to children

Last summer, when I was working freelance, I wrote and produced a series of educational videos for my then client and now actual employer, Cornerstones Education.

I made this video on the theory of evolution using Videoscribe, a really nifty piece of software by UK-based company, Sparkol. It’s a great tool for creating presentations and explaining stuff in a simple, engaging way.

Which is good, because I can tell you that natural selection is a pretty tricky concept to explain to 10 and 11 year olds!

Anyway, I tell you this in the spirit of sharing some of what I’ve been up to. Oh, and to outright brag about the video being shortlisted for the Scribey awards in the best educational scribe category.
