Physics teacher and film-maker Alom Shaha sets out to uncover a genuinely satisfying answer to his students' most common question: why is science important?

This film was made with funding from the Wellcome Trust, and is being broadcast in the UK on Teachers TV during March 2009. For more background and reaction, see the project website, www.whyscience.co.uk.

The downloadable video is Quicktime .mov format, H.264, 1280x720 resolution.

Thanks - the video is part of a much bigger project over at http://whyscience.co.uk/ featuring essays, short films and even comic strips which all provide answers to the question "why is science important?"
