Scientific American and SciVee are holding a video contest to collect short videos on "World Changing Ideas" -- the deadline for submissions was extended to September 15th, which means there are still five days left to submit your video entries on innovative ways to build a cleaner, healthier, smarter world. I'm sure there are lots of Worldchanging readers up to that task out there! Perhaps a new weekend project is born?
Videos will be judged on overall impact, scientific content, concept/originality, entertainment value, and production quality. The contest organizers are seeking 2-5 minute non-commercial videos in the following five categories:
Electronics or Robotics
Healthcare or Medicine
Winning videos will be selected in October, and posted online in November. For a full list of the contest rules and guidelines, click here.
Please note that comments will remain open for only 14 days after the article is posted. While previous comments will remain visible, attempts to post new comments after this period will fail. This helps stop comment spam, so your forebearance is appreciated.
The Worldchanging comments are meant to be used for further exploration and evaluation of the ideas covered in our posts. Please note that, while constructive disagreement is fine, insults and abuse are not, and will result in the comment being deleted and a likely ban from commenting. We will also delete at will and without warning comments we believe are designed to disrupt a conversation rather than contribute to it. In short, we'll kill troll posts.
Finally, please note that comments which simply repost copyrighted works or commercial messages will be summarily deleted.
