CRISPR at 5 different levels of complexity



The pages of Cosmos are full of complex scientific theories and technology made accessible to both the layperson and the industry professional. But could you put these theories into language even a 7-year-old could understand?

In this video series by WIRED, expert scientists are challenged to explain concepts to five different people; a 7-year-old, a 14-year-old, a college student, a graduate student and an industry expert.
