Great teachers inspire students to pursue a higher education in science and engineering. They communicate difficult concepts with ease. And they make science fun. Are you a great teacher?

Can you explain the photoelectric effect so that students really get it? Or have you got the perfect experiment to demonstrate Newton's 3rd Law? Wouldn't it be great to share those lessons with the entire nation? Well, here is your chance.

Simply shoot a video of your lesson and submit it to the USA Science & Engineering Festival. Winners will receive cash and prizes. Winning entries will be shown on the Festival website and on

You give so much and now we're giving back with
$3,500 in cash and prizes.

The Contest

To enter, explain one or more of the following concepts on video:

* Projectile Motion
* Circular Motion
* The General Theory of Relativity
* Bohr's Model of the Atom
* The Photoelectric Effect
* Newton's 3rd Law of Motion
* An important science topic of your choice

We are looking for short (2-7 minutes) videos that explain one of these science concepts. Entries will be judged on how well they convey the concept, your communication style including visual aids, and how well you inspire students to learn more.

Be fun, be creative, be you!

Sponsored by, the contest opens on July 1, 2010 and closes on October 21, 2010.

So let me get this straight. You can only be great if you teach Physics? Or is it that Physics is the only real science and nothing else counts? I realize that you have an 'other' category but that just suggests that everything else is just bullshit compared to physics. This is just inane.

Dear Annoyed,

The sponsoring organization is in the engineering and physics fields..

We are also hosting a genera Kavli Science Video Contest for all subject matter.
