Science in Video (SciVid)

Submit a 2-minute high-impact video about your research or a topic in materials science

Science in Video (SciVid) seeks scientists to develop high-impact two-minute videos to generate a broader interest in materials science while competing for recognition and prizes. We seek videos that can teach, explain, amaze, amuse or fascinate! The only thing the video shouldn’t do is sell or promote a commercial product, facility or service.

The Science in Video competition is held every fall with winners announced annually during the MRS Fall Meeting in Boston. MRS membership or Meeting attendance is not required to participate.

Winning Videos

Videos are judged by a panel of leading science video production, communication and art professionals to determine finalists and winners. Entries will be judged based on creativity, inspiration of videos and adherence to video criteria for this competition.

Submission Deadline: October 30, 2019
