The USA Science & Engineering Festival is partnering with The Kavli Foundation and SciVee to launch the Kavli Science Video Contest. The contest challenges K-12 students to create short video clips that show us why Science is Cool!
Videos might explore a scientific concept, show us the wonders of nature, give us a glimpse into the future, show us what scientific discovery has done for us in the past or will do for us in the future, introduce us to a great scientist or engineer, or simply show us why we should care about science.
A panel of distinguished judges (soon to be announced) will select the most outstanding videos to receive 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize. Prizes include cash prizes, a travel stipend for a trip to the USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo on the National Mall in Washington DC, and the Public Choice Award. In addition, the winning videos will be shown on a Jumbotron during the Expo on the National Mall and at other key Festival events.
The contest opens on April 1, 2010 and closes on May 31, 2010 and is open to K-12 students in the United States.
The contest is presented by the USA Science & Engineering Festival (www.usasciencefestival.org) and supported by The Kavli Foundation. Established in 2000, The Kavli Foundation is dedicated to advancing science for the benefit of humanity, promoting public understanding of scientific research, and supporting scientists and their work. “We are delighted to take part in the USA Science & Engineering Festival, which is a tremendous opportunity to engage young people on the importance and excitement of science,” said Fred Kavli, founder and chairman of The Kavli Foundation. “We are particularly pleased to launch the USA Science and Engineering Festival Kavli Science Video Contest. This promises to be an especially fun and meaningful event for students across the nation, and we look forward to seeing their creativity on display and celebrated in the nation’s capital.”
