BTN-Science Week/Sleek Geeks

This BTN was about three of the finalists for the Sleek Geeks Eureka video prize in 2015.

Two of the finalists where Gigi and Ella who used acting, moviemaking and even science just to find out simple question-why onions make you cry. They made a whole video explaining it with a balance of scientific concepts and concepts that are easy to understand. What part of the moviemaking do they enjoy the most?

The other finalist was William who explained why seaweed is brown and not green doing things like simplifying scientific concepts so the kids would understand the science behind it better. Why did these kids choose these particular topics?

If kids are motivated with events like this they will be more interested in science, which might lead to them considering a science-based career.

Key:

Blue-Facts(3)

Green-Questions(2)

Red-Understandings/Insights(1)
