General Electric teamed up with Mashable Watercooler and the beloved Bill Nye The Science Guy to create a series of videos that explain complex science concepts using emojis. Some of the science concepts tackled include:

  • Super Materials;
  • Climate Change;
  • Holograms;
  • Evolution; and
  • Your brain on the Internet.
