SciCast is four things:
- A competition to get children, young people, teachers, parents, science communicators and science/engineering/technology professionals all making short films about practical science.
- A web resource of all those movies, for the use and amusement of everyone involved, and particularly for schools.
- A platform to help other science engagement projects share their work with a wider audience.
- A discussion about whose responsibility it is to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers with entertaining science-related material.
SciCast is a big project, involving several events regionally and nationally, dozens of schools, and thousands of individuals. Getting your head around it can be a bit daunting. If you’re feeling daunted, try watching a film. If you didn’t like that one, try another.
