This is an entry to the Breakthrough Junior Challenge: https://www.breakthroughjuniorchallen... and has been selected for the Khan Academy's website: https://www.khanacademy.org/partner-c...

The Theory of Everything/String Theory is one of the most important but complicated concepts in physics which unified everything in the universe.

This discovery is important as it explains how, what and why all matter is what it is. It changed our understanding of everything and is crucial to our view of the universe. It’s not just a theory, but it’s a solution to problems in different areas of physics. Students of all ages should learn about it as this is strongly related to our future and can ultimately improve our world.

It is an introduction to String Theory. I hope you enjoy it. I will produce more videos on this topic very soon.

Please refer to the end of my video for the content and music/sound effect sources. For animations and graphics, I did it mostly by myself, some of them were free licensing from https://pixabay.com/ and Creative Commons, and from the movie posters: "The Theory of Everything".

I am 13 years old Tristan Pang from New Zealand.

I am inspired. I have the passion to share what I have discovered with others. I self-learnt from a young age and had completed Cambridge A Levels with the highest grade aged 11, gave a TED talk ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbMKX...) that year and received speaking invitations from around the world. Aged 12, I became the University of Auckland’s youngest maths student and am now founder of Tristan’s Learning Hub (http://tristanslearninghub.org/geomet...) where I teach maths from Year 1 to 13, and am a producer and presenter of NZ’s Planet FM’s radio show “Youth Voices with Tristan Pang” (http://planetaudio.org.nz/youthvoices).
