ANNANDALE, N.J. – June 15, 2021 – (Newswire.com)

Thor’s Outdoor Science Academy™ announced today that its episode “Hot Sauce” has been named a Silver Winner for Non-Broadcast, General-Nature/Wildlife in the 42nd Annual Telly Awards. The Telly Awards honors excellence in video and television across all screens and is judged by leaders from video platforms, television, streaming networks and production companies.

In 2020, Thornton “Thor” Giese developed his own series of experiential science videos, Thor’s Outdoor Science Academy™, which was picked up by the Emmy-winning Into the Outdoors network, which currently airs on PBS in 27 states, plus Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. The science academy tackles the elements of earth, air, fire and water in fun and relatable ways. Exploring these elements through science, history, language, food and great stories, Thor taps into his experience as an archaeologist and museum educator to bring the subjects alive for the audience.

“I am so blown away and honored to be recognized with a Telly Award. It has been a remarkable year and validates all the hard work my team and I have done to create fun, engaging and educational science videos. I am so proud to be a part of the esteemed list of winners.”

“In the face of a year like no other, Thor’s Outdoor Science Academy™ has continued to defy the limitations of our new world, in continuing to create compelling and engaging work,” said Telly Awards Executive Director Sabrina Dridje. “This year’s submissions doubled down on what we already know about the industry. Creativity cannot be stopped. Collaboration will always prevail. New ideas and stories will always find a way to break through to an audience.”

On his website, Thor features his science and cooking segments, as well as recommendations on books, podcasts and other ponderings.
