Helpful hints on how to structure your video

What is your name?

"I'm a..."

"That means I study..."

"It's important to know about this because..."

"Specifically I try to figure out if/how/whether or not..."

"I do this by studying..."

"But there's still a lot left to discover about..."

"Maybe you can help figure that out!"

[Name/Title]

[Be specific, so not just chemist, but analytical chemist]

[General sub-discipline description]

[As jargon free as possible]

[Specific work in the form of a question]
