‘Science in Fiction’ Contest

The USA Science & Engineering Festival, in association with the Kavli Foundation, has launched the “Science in Fiction” video contest.

Using scenes from popular science fiction movies and TV shows, and video games, grade 6-12 students are invited to create 30- to 90-second videos that investigate how science fictional scenes could be realized using current and developing technologies. The video contest culminates in a popular awards show, hosted by Bill Nye, as part of the festival, which returns to Washington, DC, on April 26-27, 2014.

Entries are due by March 21, 2014. First prize is a $2,000 cash prize and a travel stipend to travel to Washington, DC, for the Expo. The second prize is $750, and the third prize is $500. The People's Choice Award prize is $250.
