Due June 25th, 2020 - The Breakthrough Junior Challenge aims to bring big ideas in life sciences, physics and math to people all over the world, with a YouTube video. Choose a concept or theory in mathematics, life sciences, or fundamental physics that are important to understand but challenging to explain. This year, you also have the option of educating the world about the COVID-19 pandemic by sharing some of the science or math behind its causes, impacts and potential solutions. Create a short video to get the idea across in an engaging, illuminating, and imaginative way.

The Breakthrough Prize was created to honor important advancements in the categories of Fundamental Physics, Life Sciences and Mathematics. The Breakthrough Prizes were founded by Sergey Brin and Anne Wojcicki, Yuri and Julia Milner, and Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan. The Breakthrough Prize aims to celebrate the best scientific work and inspire the next generation of scientists.

You get it. You’ve grasped an important scientific theory, concept or principle.

Now can you share your insight?

An inventive video can get across complex material that would take pages of text to communicate.

Your film can take any form you like: animation, talking head, documentary, dramatic reconstruction, whatever. It’s worth keeping in mind that video is a dynamic visual medium – using diagrams, simulations, physical demonstrations etc. is a lot more effective than standing in front of a blackboard talking.

Entries should be no more than 3-minutes in length.
