Stand Up for Science!
From the creation of flu vaccines and new cancer therapies to enhancing agriculture and developing biofuels, bioscience breakthroughs are transforming our world and our health at a rapid pace. However, many Americans are not aware of the critical role the US federal government plays in supporting biological research and discovery.
We are looking for you to create an exciting, yet informative video to help educate Americans on how science is funded!
The video should be between 1-4 minutes in length and address at least three of the questions listed on the Guidelines and Judging Rubric
page. We have also compiled a list of Resources
to help you get started. Remember to be creative and have fun!
