The North Carolina Section of the American Chemical Society is proud to announce the 2014 ChemTube Competition! All eligible videos will be uploaded to the NCACS YouTube channel to share the exciting chemistry videos produced in North Carolina and to compete for a cash prize. We’re looking forward to seeing your video! Good luck!
The theme for this year’s competition is the National Chemistry Week theme, The Sweet Side of Chemistry – Candy! Everybody loves the sweet taste of candy, whether it’s fruity, chocolate, or any other taste! The flavor of candy and other foods comes from the chemistry of the ingredients and how your body senses them. The chemistry involved in eating, tasting, and making candy explains how we get our energy and how our body uses what we eat. We want to see videos about candy or other sweet foods that explain why you love sugar!
It’s easy to take part in the competition! All you have to do is film a video and submit an entry form and a copy of the video to email@example.com. We will upload the videos to the NCACS Youtube channel for viewing and voting.
