Episode 52 of the FizzicsEd podcast

Ever wondered whether a science video on YouTube, Vimeo or similar does the best job it can in teaching students science? PhD candidate Petr Lebedev from the School of Physics at the University of Sydney is researching exactly that. For Petr, it's not just the content that matters... it's also about whether the video grabs the viewer's attention enough to create deeper questions and reflections on the science behind the visuals.
