Kavli Science-In-Fiction Contest

2014_Kavli_Science_Video_Contest_Science_in_FictionInterplanetary travel, time travel, teleportation, brain-powered computers, and cyborgs are just some of the far-fetched technologies that have been dreamed up over time. Today’s scientists are discovering ways to make these ideas become reality.

Now in its third year, the Kavli science video contest gives middle and high school students the opportunity to investigate how science is portrayed in TV, films, and games, then make a 30- to 90-second video about how current or emerging technologies could help realize those science fiction concept.

Or they can describe what science needs to discover to make it really happen.

The 2014 theme, “Science in Fiction” was inspired by the mission of the Science & Entertainment Exchange, a program of the National Academy of Sciences.

The entry period runs from NOV. 1, 2013 – MARCH 21, 2014
