WIT is celebrating its 50th birthday this year and as part of the festivities we are inviting secondary school students to enter a fun physics video competition. We want you to produce a short (less than 3 minutes) video demonstrating and explaining some aspect of physics. Whether you want to address Newton’s first law of motion or the Big Bang in your FilmPhys entry, the more creative you are with this the better.

Who can enter?

The FilmPhys competition is open to all transition year and 5th year secondary school students. You can enter as an individual or as a socially-distanced group up to a maximum of 3 students.

What can you win?

First prize €250

Runner-up €150

Special prize for creativity €100

When?

The deadline for submissions is midnight on Sunday, 18th April 2021.

You simply need to produce a video which either

  • Explains and demonstrates an aspect of physics in an everyday context

Or

  • Explains a more advanced physics concept using everyday items

We’d like you to be as creative as you can with this – music, song, rap, poetry, graphics etc. – whatever you’d like to include to aid your explanation, GO FOR IT!

The video should be

  • less than 3 minutes in length
  • developed by an individual or by a group with a maximum of 3 members (social distancing should be maintained at all times)
  • Submitted as a weblink or uploaded in one of the following formats: mp4, m4v or mov

Multiple entries from the same person/team are permitted.

If you have any queries on the FilmPhys competition please contact Dr Gabriel Gallagher (Lecturer in Physics at WIT)
