Science, Where’s My Butterfly?
We’ve all been working very hard on our amazing group projects this semester. We’ve seen some great results – the Visions episode and radio broadcasts, and I’m sure the upcoming art exhibit will prove just as wonderful.
There are a few of us who have been working on our own science videos, away from higher quality, legitimate productions with loyal followings. Our audience is a little more limited, and Jessica Taurins, Rachel Taylor and I would be extremely grateful if you could all take a look at our video, too.
Here’s a quick summary. Apparently a few people in this world have never experienced the joy and whimsy of having a butterfly land on them; Jess was one of them. But using science (using the principles of butterfly vision), we conducted an on-location study at the Melbourne Zoo Butterfly House to see which colour shirt you should wear to get the most amount of butterflies landing on you.
You do want to be the envy of all your friends, right?
So please, have a look at our video. We’d also really appreciate it if you could let us know your thoughts (even anonymously by leaving a fake name instead of signing in to comment). Good or bad, we want to know what you think. Here are some questions we’d like you to specifically answer, if you could (but extra advice/comments are always welcome!):
– Was the science understandable?
– Were you interested in the protagonist?
– What was the overall quality of the video (low, average, high)?
– Which age group did you think this was aimed for?
And of course, here is the video:
Thanks, everyone! 🙂
