Show Notes

Communication and public outreach are an important part of a scientist’s job. But researchers often find it daunting to translate their expert knowledge for a lay audience. In this episode, UMC’s video producer Matthew Barwick shares a report from the Global Science Film Festival 2019, including interviews with festival organiser Samer Angelone and other participants. Tag along to learn their best tips for effective science communication and how to harness the power of film to tell stories in science.

Tune in to find out:

  • What scientists can gain from communicating their work
  • Why passion and emotions are an important element of science communication 
  • Why a two-way dialogue between scientist and audience is better than traditional one-way forms of communication
