The Junkyard of Scientific Theories

The third in our series on this year’s group projects by Sci Com students is ‘The Junkyard of Scientific Theories’, a charming, comic book style animation made by Joel Winston, Sophie Buijsen and Heather Cruickshank.

The Junkyard of Scientific Theories is a comic book that explores the unseen world of disproven scientific theories. The story follows a lost little robot who ends up in a junkyard. Here he encounters three scientific theories that have been thrown away and forgotten about. Through their stories we learn about the fragile nature of science and how ideas from the philosophy of science, including falsification, paradigm shifts, and social factors, have made an impact on scientific progress.
