Abstract

SFB-Outreach is an outreach project by two major German research consortia in ocean sciences, in which scientists collaborate with secondary schools to produce educational and entertaining video-clips on the background of their research. As a new approach in science communication, experience had to be built up both with the best methods of cooperation and also with innovative ways of presentation. Within the first two years, about two dozen video-clips were produced covering topics from the “use of benthic foraminifera as climate proxies” to “Tsunami generation”. Feedback from questionnaires distributed among the participating pupils shows general enthusiasm with the project, but also identifies strategies for improving shortcomings. A dedicated analysis of the reception of the project’s materials by its target audience (i.e. schools and also the general public) is planned for the second phase of the project.
