The Kavli Foundation’s Science Video Contest is the Festival’s most popular national student STE(A)M competition.
Join us at the Festival Expo when the winners of this year’s contest are announced at a special Kavli Video Competition Awards Ceremony, hosted by popular Washington, DC radio deejay Tommy McFly.
This year’s Kavli contest challenged 6th through 12th graders to create a video that investigates science as portrayed in television, films and video games.
McFly will be joined on stage in the ceremony by three noted Hollywood TV science consultants who know a thing or two about science accuracy in TV and cinema: chemist Donna Nelson, advisor to Breaking Bad; physician John Sotos, consultant to House, MD; and David Saltzberg, the particle physicist who is science advisor to The Big Bang Theory.
These experts are participating in the Expo’s “Getting the Science Right in Hollywood” panel discussion, immediately preceding the Kavli Video Contest awards ceremony.
Tommy McFly is best known in DC as the uber popular DJ currently on 94.7 Fresh FM, and recently with Mix 107.3 FM.
