      This work is an exercise in the use of 3-D animation for the communication of complex scientific subjects. An animation was produced to explain some of the more complex and abstract issues involved in the design of wireless sensor networks. The vehicle for this was a future planetary exploration expedition, which was predicated on current research in the field. The animated film was made, and displayed to a variety of audiences. Assessments were then made, through interviews, of the extent to which audiences had assimilated the principles of the technology behind the scenario which they had viewed.
