The course will be carried out for the first time in collaboration with the Haaga-Helia University of Applied Sciences journalism program. We will have room for 18 students from the University of Helsinki and 18 from Haaga-Helia. You will be forming groups of 4 (2 from HY and 2 from Haaga-Helia) to work on a science video project during the course. All the video masterpieces will be presented at a Video Gala event to conclude the course. The videos will possibly be posted on the University webpage or different social media outlets.
