EVALUATION

Last night was really nice! I love the video and many others love it as well. I didn't meet too many scientists around, but lots of delegates with a non-science background (law, policy, management etc.). One of the Australian delegates was saying it was so tiring during the meeting when the scientists talking about all those numbers and terms don't really make sense for her, but the picture definitely speaks itself! She loved it! They think the dancing in the video is really clever. They also mentioned it is really nice all different materials bound beautifully in one video.
