Our partner in the Spirit of Innovation Awards, the USA Science & Engineering Festival, wants you to tell us why Science is Cool! K-12 students can enter for the USA Science & Engineering Festival Kavli Science Video Contest! Its another great opportunity for you to test out your creativity. Here are the details from the Science and Engineering Festival:

Have your video screened on the National Mall, win prize money and electronics and possibly even a trip to the Expo in Washington D.C.! Do you think Science is cool? Do you want to share your passion for science with others? Here is your chance to inspire thousands of people to be more curious, and to care about science & engineering the way you do: create a short video that explores the question “Why is Science Cool?” Videos might explore a scientific concept, show us the wonders of nature, give us a glimpse into the future, show us what scientific discovery has done for us in the past or will do for us in the future, introduce us to a great scientist or engineer, tell us why you think science is so cool or simply show us why we should care about science and/or engineering.

Sponsored by The Kavli Foundation and conducted in partnership with SciVee, the contest closes on July 15, 2010. Prize money goes to the organization the student is representing (be it a school, after-school program, or other outreach program) – students win electronics prizes and either a trip to DC to the Expo or tickets for a VIP event to meet the Mythbusters.
