The Dreyfus Foundation asks each of its recent Teacher-Scholar Award recipients to produce a short video (under 3 min.) that describes their research for a lay audience. Two veteran science television producers, Gino del Guercio and Stephen Lyons, offered constructive suggestions on how to effectively communicate chemistry to the public and produce a successful video at the 2016 Teacher-Scholar symposium. The video below includes excerpts from their talks. The videos produced by the most recent Teacher-Scholars are compiled here.
