The Eureka! Science and Technology Video Awards are an exciting new addition to the Eureka Trust STEM pathway. To enter the Video Awards contestants will produce a video up to five minutes in length that tells a story about how a scientific or technological idea is being or could be applied in their community to increase its commercial, scientific or environmental wealth and well-being. Contestants can work in groups of up to three people in order to plan, shoot and edit their video. The Video Awards are intended to engage students in how science and technology is relevant to their local community through the use of digital technology.
