A signature component of Tim Atherton’s introductory classes for several years now has been the incorporation of Digital Storytelling video projects. Students in my General Physics II class at Tufts were asked as a final project to collaboratively create a short YouTube video explaining a topic within the scope of the class to a high school audience. This is important because science communication is an essential part of a scientists obligation to society.
We’re delighted to share some of the excellent videos from this year—we really hope you enjoy them!
