For the fourth year, RCSB PDB invited high school students to tell molecular stories in video. This year's challenge focused on the molecular view of the diabetes treatment and management. The challenge entries (all available online) demonstrate a wide variety of topics with many creative story-telling approaches.
Our panel of expert judges scored the videos based on scientific content (40%), creativity (20%), overall impact (20%), entertainment value (10%), and production quality (10%). In addition, the general public voted for the Viewer's Choice Award.
Congratulations to the 2017 Winners (which can be viewed online):
Many thanks to the expert judges, students, teachers, parents, judges, and voters who made this exciting competition happen!
