At Digital Science, we love to wind down and celebrate the successes of another year of hard work making our research community stronger. Over the years, our end of year videos have taken many forms – from speedy collages of our colleagues’ exploits and adventures over the year, to the science of Santa himself, and from at-home seasonal science activities for all to a re-working of Tom Lehrer’s classic Elements Song with a new verse to reflect 21st Century discoveries!

Catch up on all of our holiday videos here, and let us know what you’d love to see us do next year.

We know this year’s holiday season will be a little different to other years, and while you may not be spending the holidays with all of your favourite people, we wanted to add a little bit of science sparkle to your at-home festivities with a series of videos to help you participate in some Fun and Festive Frolics.

We hope that you are able to enjoy the holidays during this ‘new normal’ and that, with the help of science, next year’s holiday season is a little more familiar. Share your festive frolics with us on social media using the hashtag #DSfestivefrolics.

Discover our tales of Christmas past…

To celebrate the end of 2019, the International Year of the Periodic Table, we have created an updated version of Tom Lehrer’s famous Elements Song, which now includes all 118 known elements.

2018 saw our Christmas Explainer Series! We dive into PNC’s annual Christmas Price Index, The genetics of Christmas and so much more!

In 2016, as part of the holiday season fun, we told a new tale each day throughout December. Discover our ‘tales of #digiscixmas past’ hidden in the baubles of our Christmas tree!

To mark the festive season, in 2017 we wanted to draw back the metaphorical curtains and take a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the life of Digital Science staff members. In true Digital Science style, to make things even more interesting, we’ve hidden a few fun things in the video!

A secret location and a special Christmas gift bring Digital Science staff together to deliver a very important message from our global teams…..
