Budding Victorian high school scientists and science communicators…
More than ever STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) is involved in our everyday lives. In order to make well-informed decisions, about our health, our environment and even politics, we all need accurate unbiased information.
An important responsibility for any scientist, budding scientist, or science communicator is sharing the science and passion for their subject. Science communication is a powerful tool to provide people with information that inspires and informs.
We have all heard about fake news right? It is more important than ever to be able to identify and cut through false information and effectively and accurately communicate Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths.
One of the most effective ways to get a message across is by using video – and we are able to create amazing video using everyday devices; phones, tablets and computers! The best part is that we are able to do this anywhere – from our schools, or from our homes, which during these challenging times and with home schooling is a big plus! So, what is the ask?
Groups of up to 5 students can collaborate to produce a STEM video – veski wants YOU to get creative and produce a STEM video to compete for the veski STEM filminators video of the year!
The STEM video must run for approximately 100 seconds (that’s 1 minute and 40 seconds). An important part of the process is to identify your audience and the key message you want to communicate to them. We will be asking who your audience is when you submit your STEM video.
As a veski STEM filminator, simply choose a STEM subject and how you create the video is entirely up to you! It could be a video to convince kids to get into Engineering, a short documentary – perhaps on a new scientific discovery or a topic you have been learning in a STEM lesson – anything goes…animation…film… as long as it is about STEM!
Keep an eye out on this space to find out when the next round for veski STEM filminators video of the year competition will be open!
