Spotlight on Science: A Web Video Hackathon for students, researchers and science communicators

You have a passion for science and a knack for communication? You want to combine the two, but are not sure where to start? Then join us for a thrilling two-day hackathon on how to produce your own science web video! Organised by the Fast Forward Science contest in cooperation with the FNR, this workshop provides you with all the insights and tools you need to produce your own science web video. Get together, create and communicate your research visually!

When & where?

Friday, 22 April : 13:30-21:00 in Maison du Savoir, Belval

During the workshop

For the two days of the training, you will work in teams and each team will produce a web video (at least a part). 

YouTubers and science communicators from Wissenschaft im Dialog will hold the training. The workshop will be in English but your video can be done in these languages: English or German, but also in French or Luxembourgish, but in this case you will need subtitles (we can help you with that).
