Students are challenged to create an engaging one- to two-minute science video. The topic must be selected from the following list that deals with the science of safety and security. Each entry must explain the science behind the danger and the science, technology, engineering and/or mathematics behind a possible solution.
Choose ONE (1) of the following topics below for your video entry:
(1) Preventing the spread of germs/disease:
People pick up germs from surfaces that are not well cleaned. Health care facilities (hospitals, doctors' offices) and other public places are difficult to keep free from disease carrying germs. What can you do to make sure that surfaces that people come in contact with are as germ free as possible?
(2) Food safety:
Food can transmit disease from person to person as well as serve as a growth medium for bacteria. How can you reduce the threat of food poisoning and improve food safety.
(3) Sun protection:
Humans need natural sunlight. While some exposure to sunlight can be enjoyable and healthy, too much can be dangerous. Ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun can pass through glass and therefore reach you and all the materials round you while you are inside a building or car.
(4) Wind resistant structures:
During severe weather, structures must often withstand very high winds.
