Education and Public Outreach

We support the science community with outreach projects by an up to date communication approach and providing content creation intended for social media and traditional press and broadcast channels.

We have a solid believe that informing people, from the general public to financial decision makers about your latest scientific developments, will have a positive impact on the research, the public debate, and your next scientific project.

We share our expertise in marketing and communication with you to change an outreach expense into a returning investment.

Photography by ScienceMedia – IODP Expedition 358 (Japan, 2019)

Being where the action is

We support you in creating a rich content library that can be used and shared across a variety of media. Helping you to reach a wider audience for your research.

We follow your scientific process, in the field, the lab, the office. Gathering footage and interviews that will feed the communication strategy for the duration of the research project, and sometimes long after that. We capture moving and still images that can be processed and edited for publication on social media, high profile website’s or traditional press environments.

So don’t miss out on the action and start thinking about outreach at the beginning of your research.

IODP Partnerships

ScienceMedia has collaborated with the International Ocean Discovery Program for almost a decade to produce expedition-specific and educational videos. The footage we gather in the field has served many purposes and we continue to build on the outreach library for future projects. So we can operate as a flexible partner to reach the higher goals in communication.

IODP Expedition 370 “Exploring the Temperature Limit in the Deep Biosphere”
What is the temperature limit of microbial life beneath the ocean floor? This group of scientists boarded the drillship Chikyu and drilled 1.2 km into the seafloor to find out. We followed them during the expedition, leading to a short documentary of their efforts and initial results.

IODP Expedition 365 “Exploring the Fault Trace” (Part 1 to 4)
The 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan drove these scientists to develop hi-tech observatories with live onshore data streaming. We were there to document the placement of one of these observatories through the Nankai Trough, producing and publishing a series of 4 short videos directly from the ship along the way.

IODP A Guide to Smear Slides
This video takes you through the step-by-step process of preparing a smear slide to determine the composition of deep-sea sediments. An educational video with playful animations for context and light atmosphere.

Thinking beyond a single movie

We encourage an engaging strategy, with multiple outputs spread out over time. Building a returning and growing audience instead of limiting yourself to a single contact moment.

Create multiple video’s appealing to specific audiences with focused subjects. Don’t wait with the distribution and give your video’s relevancy by showing what you are doing, as you are doing it. Create a dialogue with the audience using the familiar social channels or create a project specific website where you can display all your work. We can help you with that.

Promote your outreach. Before people will listen to you, they’ll have to find you first!

Life at the Edge
A two part movie with seven social teasers

What makes the continental shelf in the Northwest Atlantic so productive? This Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution-led campaign combines biological, chemical, and physical oceanography to understand how nutrients are brought to the sunlit surface to stimulate life.

To promote these films on the social channels we made a series of small video’s, encouraging the audience to watch these movies and creating interest in the project.

Showing the invisible

We create animations that help communicate the principle story of your research.

Understanding science sometimes means that you have to convey abstract concepts that can’t be captured with a camera. Animation is tool capable of doing this. It can be embedded in a video, but it can also be the primary way to promote your work.

The Ocean Observatories Initiative
The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) is a major research facility operated as a community resource. It provides continuous observations spanning the seafloor, the overlying ocean, and the atmosphere, located in coastal and open ocean locations in the Atlantic and Pacific.

Introducing the Global Geo Health Data Center
Where live footage is neither available nor effective in communicating your message, we turn to sophisticated animations that sum up your project in just a few minutes. The GGHDC uses an advanced geocomputing framework to link environmental datasets to global healthcare.

Building an experience

​Beyond the scope of film, photography and websites, we create a wide range of applied media outings with specific applications like animations, 360° video or multiscreen interactive exhibits.

We transmit knowledge to the public by turning complex concepts into clearcut ideas, from educational websites replete with videos and teaching modules to interactive multimedia exhibits that make for a playful and effective outreach campaign.

In Search of Earth’s Secrets

This publicly accessible multi-screen & media roadshow brings cutting edge IODP science stories to rural and urban communities in the US. A hands-on experience while learning about science themes researched by IODP; such as earthquakes, volcanoes climate change and the extinction of the dinosaurs. The seven minute multiscreen video tells about the discoveries IODP has made over the last 50 years.

Tipping Point Ahead

We developed an interactive website for Dutch high school students and their teachers, using short videos, social media, blogs and teaching modules to offer unique insight into the research efforts of young climate scientists. Each young researcher shares their expertise on tipping points in the climate system: How hot will the Earth’s climate be in a hundred years? Where will it be the warmest? Will temperatures rise steadily or can we expect sudden shifts? In other words, which tipping points characterize the climate system?
