Discover Magazine is running a contest: make a video that explains evolution in two minutes or less.
Can you communicate the most important idea in biology, and one of the most controversial ideas in our society, in a mere 120 seconds? Think you can convince even the most hard-headed creationist that Darwin was right? If so, show us–and that creationist–how it’s done.
Your task is to create a video of no more than two minutes that will get the idea and significance of evolution across to an educated lay audience. Along the way, you can touch on points like how evolution works, how we know it to be true, the evolution of humanity, and the future of evolution.
They’ve done this before, with string theory, so you can see examples. You’ve got until 1 June to come up with a scintillating and creative lesson in evolution, so get cracking!
