Science and technology have infinite potential for solving local and global concerns. However, many scientists are unable to convey their research in a meaningful or moving way for a general audience. This communication gap can prevent important scientific advances from reaching target audiences. By teaching young scientists to be compelling communicators, we can inspire the next generation, not just to inform a general audience about KAUST research, but also to engage the viewers in a memorable way. Film can be a powerful instrument for conveying even the most technical message. This course will not only demonstrate how to effectively communicate science through film, but to emotively portray a scientific discovery’s implications on society, drawing out their value and use in a social context. Students will learn how to tell a compelling story about complicated scientific or technological research in a concise and engaging way, while acquiring new communication skills in videography.
