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.
