about: The project Cinema and Science (CISCI) was undertaken to help raise interest and improve public understanding of Science amonst the younger generation. The primary target groups were European teachers and their pupils in schools. CISCI combined the most popular media among the younger generation, namely movies and the internet, to help make science more attractive at school, to counteract the widely-spread misconceptions arising from pseudo-science, as well as to raise the pupil’s awareness and sensibility of gender-biased representations and public ethical and risk concerns related to science and scientific achievements.
