Evanston, IL (PRWEB) September 17, 2007
Young scientists of all ages, grade one through college, are invited to "make history by participating in the Internet's first science fair that awards a prize of most views of your science fair project on YouTube". The video, which can be up to five minutes long, should demonstrate the various steps of their experiment.
The 2007 International Virtual Science Fair Contest contest is sponsored by http://www.super-science-fair-projects.com and will run from September 15 through December 31, 2007. The winner of the elementary school division will receive a telescope. The winners of the middle school and high school/college divisions will receive an iPod.
Don't be discouraged if you don't have a video camera - says Madeline Binder, website director. - Your school, local library, a neighbor or relative -- someone will be able to help you, and we will show you how to put your video on YouTube - .
Science Fair Idol - One contest entrant will receive a bonus prize if their video gets the most views on YouTube. The student who has the most viewers on YouTube by January 15, 2008 at 9:00 pm CST will be the winner of $100.
"We thought it would be fun to include the number of views your YouTube video receives," Ms. Binder says. "We will give each contest entrant instructions on how to get their video to be popular."
Winners will be announced on February 15, 2008. Each winner will have their video published to their own page on the Super Science Fair Projects website.
