Science without Borders® Challenge
Science without Borders® Challenge is a yearly science competition that engages secondary students to promote public awareness of the need to preserve, protect, and restore the world’s oceans and aquatic resources through various forms of media, such as science videos and art projects.
In 2013, the Foundation held its first Science® without Borders® Challenge science competition. High school students around the world were asked to answer the question, how are we all connected to the oceans? Students were asked to submit a 1-5 minute science video presentation that could include any combination of interviews, comic storyboards, photography, and original footage to answer the challenge question. The submission conveyed a connection between everyday life and our oceans that could serve as a public service announcement to other students, teachers, parents, and the general public.
The 2013 winning Challenge science video is titled, “How Tennessee Affects the Oceans?” The film makers, Alexis Braden, Martin Lampkin, Jr., and Nicholas Wesley attend Hume Fogg High School in Nashville, TN.
The theme for this year’s Science without Borders® Challenge is ‘Protect Our Coral Reefs.’ The Foundation invites you to submit your art projects. Download contest rules and a submission form here.
