Cambridge University have chosen video to show off the best highlights from their 2012 Science Festival – and it looked fun…
Cambridge’s Science Festival in March attracted over 35,000 visitors, but only now has it appeared in video form. From workshops about ice-cream, zoology and extreme sports to hands on science termed ‘Crash, bang, squelch’, the festival tried to help people not only understand science, but also enjoy it.
The video features quick interviews and snapshots from people working at or visiting the festival.This is science that aims to appeal to a wide audience; it tries to be fun and quirky – something the video reflects in its upbeat music and bright colours.
Taking a step away from the usual informative science videos uploaded online, Cambridge University have done their best to engage more than the intellectually minded professors and students who usually watch their content.
