The Collaborative Research Centre 754 (SFB 754) at GEOMAR in Kiel, Germany is an interdisciplinary research programme, which investigates the threats posed by ocean de-oxygenation and how this is coupled with climate change and the nutrient balance in the tropical oceans. The outreach component of SFB 754 has the task of producing videos with and for school pupils, in which different aspects of the science of the SFB are explained and introduced in a short and entertaining fashion. The goal is to attract pupils to sciences, both by the active involvement in the video production and by the consumption of the videos made by other pupils. So far more than 30 video clips were published on a dedicated website for viewing and download. The process of video production is enjoyable for all parties involved, but it is also time consuming and entails considerably more work for students and teachers, than normal lessons in class. As a result, the project now concentrates on dedicated summer schools and after-school
activities as a platform for video production
