Student video contest winners show their AI intelligence
High school and middle school students were honored in Tech Titans fifth annual STEM video contest, sponsored by State Farm, that inspires students to truly 'show what you know' in fun ways. Of course, it doesn't hurt that the subject matter needs to be researched, hopefully inspiring these students stay in STEM fields for the long haul.
This year’s videos describe engineering careers and artificial intelligence technologies, creating excitement about a future in technology and showing how students can play a part. Students created this compelling content for educators to share with younger students and inspire the pursuit of STEM careers.
More than 140 students participated, representing 11 schools in five North Texas school districts. The 34 videos submitted were judged by a volunteer panel of technical experts, educators and video production teams. Virtual judging was hosted by Cisco.
Three teams were awarded $1,000 and plaques for their winning entries. The two runner-up teams received $500. All received gift boxes filled with surprises and fun swag from State Farm and Qorvo, delivered ahead of a virtual awards ceremony.
