The China Adolescents Science Video Festival as an exploratory science communication event, mixes informative, scientific and entertaining qualities with itself and angles towards vast teenagers. It is a vital form to encourage teenagers to roll back the frontier of the science, experience the media technology and display their practical fruits. The Festival has been held for a ninth straight time. Since 2015, the China Adolescents Science Video Festival has been listed as one of the “Dandelion Dreams” summer themed activities advocated by the Ministry of Education and has become the hallmark of China science communication event. We firmly believe that the 9th China Adolescents Science Video Festival will as usual sows seeds of science into teenagers’ hearts, nurtures them into something bigger. Likewise, with the stimulus of the Festival more and more Chinese teenagers can lose heart to science and scientific video and bloom into the backup driving forces and even anchors of China scientific cause to roll back the frontiers of science.
