Got an idea for a short statistical video?
The Australian Academy of Science is keen to produce short topical videos promoting science and, in particular, statistics. If you have an idea for a short one to two minute statistical video aimed at public education or topics of public interest then the Academy and the Statistical Society of Australia would like to hear from you.
The Australian Academy of Science has a long history of increasing science literacy and awareness amongst the public from direct communication and public lectures to online websites and media.
In addition, the Australian Academy of Science supports excellence in science, science education, international scientific relations and encourages public policy to be underpinned by relevant science.
One recent Academy initiative is to produce short science videos aimed at the general public. New short web articles and videos are published on the Academy’s website: https://www.science.org.au/curious/
The Academy has a “social media first” publishing strategy with all material being designed to target the 15 million Australians who are active on Facebook every month. The main platform is https://www.facebook.com/AustralianAcademyofScience/ They also publish at
