Middle and high school students can develop videos as one of many events designed to complement the 2017 Topcoder programming and design competition that will be hosted at the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus in October.
The STEM video challenge, powered by AT&T, is designed for students to show how they predict technology will lead to an improved future in Western New York. Students are encouraged to blend technology with creativity in their video production, including mobile devices, drones, animation and special effects.
Video submissions from students are being accepted through Oct. 6 at bnmc.org/STEM-video-challenge. Participants must be enrolled in grades 5 through 12, be 18 years or younger, and a resident of Erie or Niagara County.
Middle school students will compete only against those in grades 5 to 8, and high schoolers against students in grades 9 to 12. Entries will be accepted in individual and group categories for both grade levels.
Winners will be announced Oct. 24 at the Topcoder finals at dig in the Innovation Center, 640 Ellicott St. Three winners will be selected in each category and have a chance to win cash prizes of up to $500.
