Chemistry-Physics Recruiting Video

Today is show-n-tell day (at least for this blog). Our department (Chemistry and Physics) has recently been focusing on increasing our undergraduate enrollment. One of the steps we have taken is to have the following video created. I think it is pretty good.

Southeastern Louisiana University Chemistry and Physics from SELU Chem and Phys on Vimeo.

If you are a chemist, the first thing you are going to say is “what is up with the green bubbling liquid?” You are right, that is fake. Sometimes these video people want stuff that looks cool.

    It’s a good video, but it needs explosions. (Kidding, but I’m a chemist, and former lecturer, and the “energetic reactions” were always good for getting students to pay attention) At least they didn’t want to put dry ice in the useless green goo.

    And thankfully, whenever they were working, they were wearing safety glasses!!! Yea Safety!!!1

    The lady’s reaction shown through her eyes at about 00:25 was priceless when the other person lifted something, like “Oh no, what are you doing?”
