The aim of this project is to increase the scientific understanding and skills of the general public, particularly young people, through a series of short film clips. The pilot film has been produced in collaboration with the Swedish National Food Agency.
Work is on-going to find additional partners to join the project and to produce more films, for example, about the history of science, how to become a researcher, different scientific disciplines and types of studies, research funding, statistics, and how the publishing process works. The idea is that teachers should also be able to use the clips in their teaching to aid discussion. We also plan to develop teaching materials and discussion activities as part of the project.
