Breakthrough Junior Challenge with Khan Academy

In partnership with the Khan Academy, the Breakthrough Prize has launched an annual global competition for high school science and math students to inspire creative thinking about fundamental concepts in the natural sciences and mathematics.

The competition is called the Breakthrough Junior Challenge, and it invites students ages 13 to 18 to create original videos that bring to life a concept or theory in the life sciences, physics or mathematics. The submissions will be judged on the student’s ability to communicate complex scientific ideas in the most engaging, illuminating, and imaginative ways. 

One winner will be recognized and will be awarded a $250,000 educational prize. The science teacher who inspired the winning student will win $50,000, and the winner’s school will receive a state-of-the art science lab valued at $100,000, designed in partnership with Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory

The Breakthrough Junior Challenge winner will also be invited to the Breakthrough Prize in November, and the student and his or her teacher will be announced during the live, nationally televised show, broadcast in the US by National Geographic Channel on Sunday, November 8 at 7.00pm PT, 10.00pm ET, and rebroadcast globally via National Geographic and the Fox Cable Networks.

As we are hoping to reach as many young science enthusiasts as we can, please feel free to send this information to any organizations or schools that reach high school students, teachers or young scientists. Note that the contest runs on a pretty tight timeframe: the deadline for submissions is October 7, 2015.
