Beauty of Science is an educational effort from XinZhi Digital Media whose mission is to, “to inspire students to study STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).” Their Envisioning Chemistry project takes advantage of state-of-the-art photographic and technological equipment to present visually compelling views of chemical reactions. Seeing the beauty of two chemicals combining and creating a precipitate is a great way to inspire further curiosity, as seen below in the Precipitation2 video below.

And of course, it wouldn’t be a proper chemistry education without lighting stuff on fire, via Elemental Burning.
