In April, the American Chemical Society launched the Chemistry Champions contest in an ”an effort to find and train promising science communicators”. As the number of participants seems to be small, why don’t take the chance (if you are an ACS member in the US) to go to San Francisco ?
From the first round, twelve three minute-videos, are now available for our viewing pleasure. Apparently, ACS feels that twelve competitors are too few to discover ”the Carl Sagan of chemistry” in this talent competion, American-Idol-style. Accordingly, they have now extended the deadline to June 13.
Some of the submitted videos are engaged and well-produced. However, they have really tough competion in the invitation video made by the ACS team themselves. Our favourite!
