How to inspire others
« on: 13/11/2010 16:32:55 »
I just made a video on youtube that shows how wonderful and beautiful science and the world can be.
If this video gets a decent amount of hits, I will make more, though with actual content. I want to spread my curiosity to others. Give me your thoughts. Thanks :)
I am beginning to tutor math at my high school, but do you have any ideas of how I can inspire others to take an active interest in science on top of creating videos.

Well - it's very pretty; but it's not a video, it's a slideshow, and more importantly science is so much more than pretty pictures.  I really cannot see it appealing to children and "turning them on to science".  Nice production and good photos; but it's not science and I cannot imagine it being a hit with kids.

Thanks for the input. I guess I'm not trying to grab just kids' attention, but the public in general. I do regret the music choice. Also, this video wasn't meant to provide scientific knowledge, just to show the interesting and beautiful things that science takes an interest in.
