How to explain invisible phenomena

Have you ever wondered how information designers explain “invisible phenomena” that are “too big, too small, too slow or too abstract for normal sensory comprehension”? I borrowed the term invisible phenomena from Eric Siegel to describe experiences, concepts, things or processes

Creativity + Science: Online Course for PhD Students

Researchers aim to create new applications to their work, and to develop novel discoveries. However, many scientists start their research projects with pre-conceived ideas and assumptions, making it harder for them to make extraordinary contributions or explore the unknown. Similarly,
