2021 Video Challenge for High School Students
2021 Video Challenge Awards
For the eighth year, RCSB PDB invited high school students to create videos telling molecular stories. The 2021 challenge focused on the Molecular Mechanisms of Drugs for Mental Disorders.
The 2021 challenge entries demonstrate many creative storytelling approaches and techniques in communicating science.
The videos were scored based on Quality of Storytelling (20%), Quality of Science Communication (30%), Quality of Public Health Message (10%), Originality and Creativity (20%), Quality of Production (10%), and Proper Accreditation (10%), and our panel of expert judges selected the three winners of the Judges' Award. In addition, the general public voted for the Viewer's Choice Award.
Many thanks to the judges, students, teachers, parents, and voters who made this exciting competition happen!
Note: Videos are intended for communication and not rigorous scientific review.
