Mr Guay’s Science Video Contest

For the June holidays, I decided to organise a Science Video Contest! All my current students (Sec 2 - Sec 4) may apply.

To foster and cultivate the spirit of learning and self-discovery; to stimulate creativity and enhance the learning experience of Science.

Create a short video that is related to Science (preferably but not restricted to Physics).

Let your creativity flow! There’s no restriction to the format or style of video. It could be a video of you demonstrating an experiment, a magic trick, an illusion. Or it could be a collection of video clips/pictures that is related to the topic you are showing. It can even be a MTV, a comical skit or a cartoon, as long as it is related to Science!

1st: $50 voucher
2nd: $30 voucher
3rd: $10 voucher

  • Individual or group effort. Multiple entries allowed.
  • Clear explanation on the scientific principles. Explanation can be done in the video OR offline (e.g. a writeup or report).
  • Sources of information or materials used must be clearly cited
  • Allow your video to be uploaded to youtube for sharing/viewing
  • No restriction on video format, length, music used etc.
  • Judges decision is final.
