Quantum Matters Science Communication Competition
Entries are due Friday, March 1
Entries are now being accepted for the 2019 National Quantum Matters™ Science Communication Competition. Researchers and interested individuals or teams are invited to explain a quantum concept to a family audience in three minutes or demonstrate one with a hands-on activity. Win prizes, fame and a trip to Boston in early April for the competition finals.
There are two competition categories:
- Talk: Interested researchers are invited to create a fabulous, jaw-dropping, three-minute talk for a family audience explaining a key concept related to your research in quantum science or technology and how it might matter to us in the future.
- Demonstrate: Individuals and teams (researchers or not) can design a fabulous, ah-ha! producing, hands-on activity for museum visitors, communicating a key concept in quantum science or technology and how it might matter to us in the future.
Finalists will receive expert coaching, $200 stipends, travel to Boston, cash prizes ($100 – $400), and photos and video. Entries are due Friday, March 1. The finals will be held Friday, April 5 and Saturday, April 6, 2019, before a live audience at the Museum of Science.
