about: The project Cinema and Science (CISCI) is an undertaking to help to raise interest and to improve public understanding of Science in the young generation. The primary target groups are European teachers and their pupils in schools. CISCI combines the most popular media among the young generation, namely movies and the Internet, to help to raise the attractiveness of science at schools, to counteract the widely spread misconceptions arising from pseudo-science as well to raise the pupil's awareness and sensibility of gender-biased representations and public ethical and risk concerns related to science and scientific achievements.
