Founded in 2016, Beauty of Science (BOS) produces inspiring content for K–12 STEM education and science outreach. The BOS team is led by Yan Liang, PhD, who is the main creator of Beautiful Chemistry, a project with the goal to bring the beauty of chemistry to the general public.

Building on the success of Beautiful Chemistry, BOS is creating high-quality content (videos, comics, books) to bring the beauty and wonder of science to more people. Each week a new video is released to showcase the beauty of science.
