As part of the citizen science project AstroSounds, VRT worked together with students of LUCA School of Arts to create short, animated videos for public displays that deliver the scientific story in an engaging way to a broader audience. The videos were shown on public screens in the library Tweebronnen in Leuven and accompanied the physical installation of citizen science project AstroSounds.
The Flemish citizen science project AstroSounds launches a call to Flemish citizens to listen to stars. In this way, citizens can help scientific research. As of January 11, 2022, visitors can discover AstroSounds (in Dutch) via a physical installation in the Tweebronnen Library in Leuven, as part of the KNAL! City Festival. Linked to the installation is a Belgian case study within the ParCos project, that aims to research how vertical video content on public screens can inform and engage people with science stories.
As part of the UK case study, KWMC has been working with families in South Bristol to explore participatory science communication. On the 28th of October, KWMC held The Factory Takeover, which brought together 6 families (7 adults and 15 children) during the half-term holidays to explore sustainability through hands-on making, exploration and play. This hyperlocal approach illustrated the impact of engaging with science in a creative manner.
As the Flemish public broadcaster, VRT aims to inform, inspire, and connect all Flemish citizens. In today’s everchanging media landscape, emerging technologies define new circumstances for getting your message across. This brings with it significant challenges when the story you want to tell is not a straightforward one. To collect some insights and best practices, we asked vlogger Jacotte Brokken to interview colleagues at VRT about their approach for communicating science stories.
