Creative ideas for science videos.
Think out of the box for your next science lesson.
Educational science videos can be way more interesting than a regular lecture. Filming a video gives you the chance to demonstrate what you’re talking about and add visual elements to make the lessons really stick. Try some of these creative ideas.
Science video ideas.
- How-to videos: Bring science to life with hands-on, easy-to-follow videos. For example, you can visually demonstrate how density works with different types of liquids. Or you can experiment with dry ice to make ice cream. Encourage viewers to try for themselves as they learn the science behind what they’re doing.
- Employ animation: If you’re trying to explain a tough-to-grasp concept, such as how electrons bond or how energy is made in a cell, try creating graphic animation to show on-screen while you’re talking. The more your viewers can visualize what you’re saying, the more effective your science video is. This is a great idea for the artistic science teachers out there.
- Make it topical: Relate your science video to what’s happening in the world. For example, if a blizzard just hit, you could talk about the science of snow, or even use that how-to video tactic to show how snow forms in the atmosphere.
- Pose questions: The point of science is to pose big questions and design ways to answer them. Use your science video to set up these questions. Think: How was the universe formed? Why do we dream? Where does water come from? Not only do big questions intrigue viewers, posing them also highlights the fundamental principles of science.
