In today's society, educating the general public about complex topics such as science and technology can be a daunting, difficult task. The goal of this project was to gain an understanding of such task and create a method any presenter could use to effectively teach science. The psychology behind learning was explored, manipulated, and implemented into a training DVD for educators in a variety of learning environments. Although teaching science can often cause problems and lead to misconceptions, the method of "multimodal teaching" was found to be the most effective regardless of audience learning diversity through the research and evaluation detailed in this report.
