Quantum Matters Competition 2018

2018 Quantum Matters Science Communication Competition Finals

Quantum Matters Competition 2018 - Museum of Science Boston, MA

Sound and Vision Media is honored to be working with the Museum of Science, Boston, MA on their Quantum Matters Competition 2018 and the NanoNerds – NanoDays project.

Our creative team worked closely with the Museum staff throughout the Quantum Matters Competition production timeline to film and edit a series of videos.

Four young scientists compete to give the best (and most-entertaining) 3-minute explanation of a significant aspect of quantum technology to a family audience at the Museum of Science, Boston. Sponsored by the Museum of Science and the Center for Integrated Quantum Materials; funded by the National Science Foundation (Award No. 1231319). All rights reserved.
