Cubist Pharmaeuticals and the Cambridge Science Festival are challenging 15-20 year olds to create a video, 30 sec. – 5 min. long, that explains what a germ is to a 5th grade audience. (Contestants DO NOT need to live in Cambridge.)
Entries must be accurate, thorough, creative, engaging, and fun. Entries will be judged first by a panel of Cubist scientists and then by a panel of 5th graders.
- The individual winner will receive a GoPro video camera.
- The team/class winner will receive a $1500 gift certificate to buy hands-on science supplies.
- Deadline to enter is March 28.
Simply post the entry on YouTube or Vimeo and send the link to: CambridgeSciFest@gmail.com. Please include your full name and age in the email.
Both winning videos will be shown at the 2014 Cambridge Science Festival. Learn more.
