STEM video contest now open
Tech Titans’ support of STEM continues to gain momentum. The 2017 STEM Video Contest, sponsored by State Farm, invites middle and high school students to create a fun video around health technology or Smart Cities. Reaching younger kids about how inspiring STEM paths are will pay off for them and our community in the long run.
This contest seeks to help fill the Tech Titans resource vault and provide professionals compelling content to use while volunteering with students. Videos will target elementary students, describe a technology, create excitement about its future and how students can play a part. Students from grades 6 through 12 can enter their fun video in one of two technology areas, health technology and Smart Cities. Middle school and high school winners in each area will win $1,000. Submissions will be accepted starting Monday, Oct. 2 and are due by Tuesday, Nov. 28.
Volunteers, including technical experts, professionals and video production teams, will be needed starting in October to help mentor student teams if they ask for help. Judges are also needed to give feedback to our aspiring producers during an evening set aside for judging. Consider donating some time for this effort or contacting another source to help. Click to sign up for ~5 hours of a time commitment.
If you know any students who are creative, technical, or think video production is in their future, please let them know about this opportunity. A flyer is available to download and send on. View our 2016 winners and promotion video to experience some creative and innovative students promoting STEM.
