Vote to Help Pick a Winner
The IEEE SSCS Education Committee is holding a Circuit Video Contest where participants create short videos that explain introductory Circuit and Electrical Engineering concepts to high school students or undergraduates who are unfamiliar with circuits. We need your help to view the videos and Click "Like" if you like the videos!
All of the videos can be found on the SSCS YouTube Channel in this playlist here.
The IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society is pleased to announce a second 2019 student contest: the SSCS Circuits Video Contest.
WHAT: Create fun short (5-minute to 10-minute) videos that explain circuits
AUDIENCE: High school students
HOW: Tell a story that uses drawings, cartoons, and analogies to connect a circuits topic to a real-world application.
This example video about Machine Learning shows the style of video: https://youtu.be/ZmBUnJ7lGvQ
Think about telling a story to connect your audience to the circuits concept you chose in a way that they can understand. The template below is a suggested approach for formulating your story, but creative alternatives are encouraged:
1. Students pick a circuits topic (e.g., ADC, Low power digital, RF TX ...)
2. Begin your video by describing a compelling application (link to the real world)
3. Define a step-by-step connection from the application to the circuit
4. Explain how the circuit works, at an appropriate level for the audience
5. Revisit the impact at the application level
The objective of this contest is to excite students about circuit design and its impact on important applications. Submissions are solicited by both undergraduate and graduate students who are currently enrolled in a college or university.
Video submissions should:
- Motivate a real-world application of circuits
- Give clear step-by-step explanations with animated figures
- Be clear and appealing to high-school students
- Be about ~5 minutes in length (10 minutes maximum)
Students who submit videos that are selected for voting will receive one year of free SSCS membership.
This contest is open to undergraduate and graduate students who are currently enrolled in a college or university. IEEE and/or SSCS membership is NOT a requirement to enter this contest. Group entries are allowed.
