Animated abstracts

Using animated videos – what a cool method to communicate science to a wider audience and present findings in a simple but effective way.

A great way of communicating science to the public has been published on youtube.com – an animated abstract!

Check out the animated abstract here – the video was posted by Amber Thomas and is described as  being a way to “explain the findings of a research project in a complete but simple manner“.

We aren’t commenting on the paper itself here – just the method of communicating science to a wider audience.

The video post asks this question in the comments section: “What do you think of this method of science communication (#scicomm)?”.

What do you think? Feel free to comment below…
