Students aged 11-16 are invited to make a video highlighting copper's role in our daily lives. The short video should show one of copper's key properties. For example, ‘Conductivity' could be filmed as thermal conductivity in action (in radiators, computer heat sinks or cookware) or its electrical conductivity (in computers, mobile phones and other electrical equipment).
The competition is open to students studying any subject, including Science, Art and Design Technology. Cash prizes are available for the winning students and their schools. The deadline for entries, which should be posted on YouTube, is 31 May.
Videos should be imaginative in their portrayal of copper applications, and show consideration for the ways in which copper supports and enriches our daily lives.
