Shooting the Chemical videos at the Institute of Chemistry, Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics
Wikiexperiments (Викиексперименти) is a project by Shared Knowledge supported by Macedonian government for the project "Education through Wikipedia" 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 January 2020 and continues to whole year. On January 22, in collaboration with Professors Vladimir Petruševski, Marina Stojanovska and Miha Bukleski from the Institute of Chemistry at the Faculty of Natural Sciences and Mathematics at the University "Ss. Cyril and Methodius", have 18 recorded experiments of chemistry. A professional production house was hired for the filming.
