The AGH University received awards in a Polish competition for a creative higher education institution promotional campaign ‘Genius Universitatis 2023’. The jury granted our university two awards for the activities carried out by the Centre for Communication and Marketing: in the content marketing caterogy for ‘Bunkier nauki’, and in the online video category for ‘Istotny błąd’.
Bunkier nauki [Science Bunker]
This popular science channel, created by the Centre for Communication and Marketing, launched in June 2022. Episodes that air every two weeks (there have been 20 of them so far) take the form of casual 30- to 40-minute-long conversations with scientists and popularisers of science about the hottest scientific topics. We have talked about climate change, artificial intelligence, space exploration, computer games, air pollution, telemedicine, and diabetes, among other things. Bunkier nauki is a place for science aficionados who discuss the most important issues of the present. The channel is intended for all those curious about the world. In the era of fake news and pseudoscience, the AGH University delivers information that introduces our viewers and listeners into the world of science in a reliable, credible, and, most of all, straightforward way.
The recording studio was established at the Faculty of Foundry Engineering. The stage design of the studio, apart from elements alluding to the industrial nature of the place, also includes Senster – a cybernetic and interactive sculpture from the 1960s, authored by Edward Ihnatowicz.
Science Bunker episodes are available in Polish on our YouTube channel or as a podcast on Spotify.
