There’s disappointingly few great interactive websites out on the world wide web, fewer still that communicate something truly meaningful, so it’s an extraordinary pleasure to write about one that does both. Digesting Science is an interactive site created by the Centre for Neuroscience and Trauma at Barts Hospital, London that’s designed to explain MS to children with parents that suffer from the condition. It discusses, with a refreshingly un-patronising tone, the causes and effects of the disease as well as the possible treatments.
Alongside an interactive diagram of the human body that guides users simply and clearly through the neurological and physical effects of the condition, there’s a series of videos that explain things in greater depth to reassure children and adults alike. All in all it’s a seamless online experience for an incredibly worthy cause.
