Sixty Symbols:

From the University of Nottingham and Brady Haran, Sixty Symbols is a
brilliant example of using clever design, excellent interface, hooks
to curiosity, snippets of wry humor, and new social media technologies
to promote their campus expertise, create a learning space, engage
their audience. Basically, a real win-win!

In their words:
“It’s worth noting many symbols have multiple uses and we somtimes
tackle them from an unexpected viewpoint. Click on “gamma” and you’ll
find a professor of physics talking about cricket balls… Click on
“rho” and we’re stuffing paperclips into coffee cups. And sometimes –
when there’s no symbol to tell a story – well, we just make one up!
Whatever symbol you choose, we hope you’ll find something interesting
and curious. Or if there’s a symbol you’d like explained, contact us
at sixtysymbols@hotmail.co.uk
