What is Planet SciCast I hear you ask?
Well, according to the “About” page on their website:
Planet 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 (plus write-ups of the activities, experiments and demonstrations), for the use and amusement of everyone involved, but particularly for schools.
- A platform for other science engagement projects to share their work with a wider audience.
- Finally, a discussion about who’s job it is to inspire the next generation of scientists and engineers with entertaining science related material.
There are some wonderful films on the site about almost everything to do with science. Maybe you will be inspired to make a film to submit yourself 🙂
