The study aims to promote the awareness and education of soft matter which has become a popular research topic owing to its capability of developing self-assembling materials for numerous industries such as self-healing materials. To pursue after this aim, we composed a homemade video to illustrate the soft matter concepts, followed by distributing a pre/post attitudinal survey to evaluate the effectiveness of the video on promoting the awareness of soft matter. The survey showed that the video effectively stimulated the public interest in soft matter-related knowledge, research, and careers by 27.8 % on average. Moreover, the participants demanded more investment and soft matter education, suggesting that WPI provide more resources on developing soft matter education.
