Watch the films shortlisted for the Sleek Geeks Science Eureka Prize

Watch now

Sponsored by the University of Sydney, the Sleek Geeks Science Eureka Prize encourages students to explore a scientific concept, discovery or invention, or test their own scientific hypothesis in a 1-3 minute film.

There is a prize pool of $10,000 to be shared between the winners and their schools, and finalist representatives also win a trip to Sydney for the Australian Museum Eureka Prizes Award Dinner.

I would certainly encourage anyone with an interest in this sort of thing, not just STEM but video making and science communication ... to contribute to this competition. It's such a great challenge and it's fantastic to do it with a bunch of your friends. Anna Hardy, co-winner 2017 Sleek Geeks Science Eureka Prize - Secondary
