MRSEC Video Competition

The Third Annual Scientific Video Contest is now accepting entries. This is your chance to use your best videography skills to share exciting MRSEC-related findings with the world.

Showcase MRSEC-related research in a 90-second video — you can make animations, narrate slides, or even act out your research. Any Brandeis-affliated undergraduate, graduate student, post-doc, staff or faculty person is eligible to enter and make a video about Brandeis-MRSEC research. You do not need to be a MRSEC member to win.

The top three videographers will receive exciting prizes - a MacBook Air (or PC equivalent) for first place, an iPad (or PC equivalent) for second place, and a Wacom graphics tablet for third place. Submissions will be accepted until July 8th, and winners will be announced mid July.

Winning videos will be under 90 seconds, clear, accessible to non-specialists, and convey the significance of Brandeis-MRSEC research to society. Excellent videos will also display the Brandeis MRSEC logo and articulate how a specific research project or question is improved by being included in a center grant. All videos will be linked to/associated with the BrandeisMRSEC YouTube account (playlist!).
