From Digital Capital Week

i-f6a5728ff838dce51dddd49f24d6e612-festival logo.jpgThis year is becoming a year of firsts for technology, media and science in the Nation's Capital. Much like DCWeek's inaugural convention for techies & creatives, for the first time this October, over 400 of the nation's leading science, engineering and academic organizations will descend on the National Mall to present the First Annual USA Science & Engineering Festival.

Amongst the numerous hands-on science exhibits, workshops, and performances The Kavli Foundation is looking to showcase student videos that will be broadcast during the festivities on the National Mall. The K-12 Kavli Science Video Contest will award cash prizes to the student's school or youth organization, with the winner receiving electronics and software gift certificate and a trip to Washington DC or a VIP Discovery Channel "Mythbusters" event.

The contest encourages students to create imaginative, clever and entertaining youth-driven media that shares their love of science, be it engineering, robotics, oceanography, astronomy, 3D modeling with other youths. Describe your favorite subject matter, a winning science fair project or showcase a new invention, just be creative!

Click here for more information, the deadline is August 31. Work on your own, team up with a friend and create something that the entire Mall will see this October. Dozens of videos have already been submitted; take a peek at two of them below!
