In groups of 2-4, produce a 3-minute news report video on anything of Scientific and Mathematical interest.

This could be

·      a 'Breaking News' flash story

(hypothetical is cool);

·      a mini-documentary

(so seriously serious stuff);

·      an advert

(‘cause you think it’s just awesome);

·      or even a 'truthful' anti-advert for one from TV

(‘cause you don’t believe the adverts claims)!
