The Breakthrough Junior Challenge is an annual global competition for students to inspire creative thinking about science. Students ages 13 to 18 from countries across the globe are invited to create and submit original videos (3:00 minutes in length maximum) that bring to life a concept or theory in the life sciences, physics or mathematics. This year, there is an additional COVID-19 category. The submissions are judged on the student's ability to communicate complex scientific ideas in engaging, illuminating, and imaginative ways. The Challenge is organized by the Breakthrough Prize Foundation.
Your video will be judged according to the following criteria:
Did the video capture the viewer's interest? Did the viewer want to keep watching the video to the end?
Did the video explain the subject matter clearly, allowing the viewer to develop a genuine understanding of the video's content? Did the video demonstrate a rigorous dive into the subject matter?
Did the entrant make an effort to approach the subject matter in an innovative or creative way?
Is the subject matter challenging? Is the subject typically taught at high school level or beyond?
