UL Global Student Ambassador Programme
University of Limerick International Office
Requirements: Interest in STEM, Communication, or Video Production.
ReelLIFE SCIENCE is a STEM outreach programme based in the University of Galway, which encourages young people in schools and youth groups to engage with science and technology by creating short videos for the general public. Videos communicate topics such as 'Climate Action', 'How Things Work' and 'Science and Me'. Taking part helps young people develop their communication, teamwork and digital skills, while promoting awareness of the impact of science and technology on society. Since 2013, over 20,000 participants in more than 600 primary schoools, secondary schools and youth organisations have produced more than 2000 videos nationwide. The best videos at each level win €1000 for their school or group and are screened for the public at the Galway Science and Technology Festival.
In 2022, we want to recruit a panel of volunteer video judges to help us find the best videos produced by these young people. Each volunteer judge will receive ten YouTube links and a grading sheet to assess and provide feedback on the three minute videos based on scientific content, production values and x-factor. Judging will be done online, in your own time (it should only take about one hour) and you will have one week to return your scores. Volunteers will receive a ReelLIFE SCIENCE digital badge in recognition of their participation.
Irish speaking judges are particularly welcome to sign up to judge videos received as Gaeilge!
ReelLIFE SCIENCE is supported by the Science Foundation Ireland Discover Programme, Foróige, the CURAM Centre for Research in Medical Devices, the Community Knowledge Initiative in NUI Galway, Cell EXPLORERS and the Galway Science and Technology Festival.
