Wikiexperiments (Викиексперименти) is a project by Shared Knowledge aimed at recording high-quality videos of systematically selected experiments for the purposes of illustrating important scientific concepts and phenomena in various sciences. This is an ongoing project that started in December 2015 and continues well into 2016.

Physics videos from the Institute of Physics, Skopje[edit]

In December 2015 Shared Knowledge uploaded the first round of high-definition videos of experiments conducted to demonstrate various laws and principles of physics. These 25 demonstrations were performed by Prof. Oliver Zajkov at the Physics Institute at the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje, as part of a WikiExperiments project by Shared Knowledge.

The experiments are described in Macedonian and English, and added to articles on the Macedonian and English Wikipedia. Some of them also found their way in other language editions too.

The Second of the two rounds of of experiments are currently being recorded.

Physics gallery[edit]

These are the videos of the physics experiments uploaded to Wikimedia Commons. They are described in Macedonian and English, but we would dearly appreciate if the descriptions can be translated in as many languages as possible and placed in their relevant articles on various Wikipedias. The thumbnail descriptions below each video here are short, and merely give an idea about their meaning. Each has a detailed description on its file page.

Note: Clicking on each description under the thumbnail will lead you to the file page with proper full description of the video.

Translation to other languages[edit]

Shared Knowledge would be very grateful to the wider Wikimedia community if the descriptions of these scientific videos can be translated from English to as many languages as possible and inserted into the relevant articles on those Wikipedias.

Chemistry videos from the Institute of Chemistry, Skopje[edit]

In June 2016 Shared Knowledge uploaded the first round of high-definition videos of experiments conducted to demonstrate various reactions in chemistry. These 20 demonstrations and experiments were performed by Prof. Vladimir Petruševski at the Institute of Chemistry at the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje, as part of a WikiExperiments project by Shared Knowledge.

The experiments are described in Macedonian and English, and added to articles on the Macedonian and English Wikipedia. Some of them also found their way in other language editions too.
