How to Submit a Video Abstract
Ocean 180 encourages ocean scientists to share their discoveries and excitement for research with teachers, students, and the public. The program challenges scientists to create 3 minute video abstracts that effectively communicate the meaning, significance, and relevance of published research to general, non-scientific audiences.
Winning entries will be awarded a total of $9,000 in cash prizes.
