The goal of iClimate is to publicize and raise awareness of climate change and environmental research at McMaster, foster interdisciplinary collaboration, and develop students’ ability to share their research with the public in a creative and memorable way. Students will create short individual or group videos showcasing their research, to enter into a contest judged by McMaster faculty and the public via a social media platform. GoPro cameras will be available to borrow from iClimate, and technical and media support will be available.
Great prizes - such as GoPro cameras - will be offered in multiple categories, presented at a gala premiere event at the end of the project.
