HTwins.net - The Scale of the Universe

Zoom from the edge of the universe to the quantum foam of spacetime and learn the scale of things along the way!
The Scale of the Universe is an application, that works really well on an interactive whiteboard, to use with learners when trying to visualise a sense of scale. How much smaller are atoms compared to things that we can see like a grain of rice. How much bigger is our galaxy compared to our solar system etc.

How Many Really?

How Many Really? | technologies | Scoop.it

How Many Really? compares the number of people involved in key historical events or situations to the people you know through Facebook or Twitter or other size groups.

 

It is part of Dimensions,  an experimental project from the BBC, that allows users to compare the scale of different types of events with something that we can all recognise.

 

“How many really?”...

- is all about the numbers of people that were involved in a whole range of different events throughout history.
- allows users to add in their own numbers and they are then shown a visual comparison with the number of people involved in the event that they have chosen.

 

The events fall into the following categories:

Battles
Civilisations
Current Affairs
Disasters
Diseases
Entertainment
Modern Society
Religion
Slavery
War
