National STEM Film Competition ReelLIFE SCIENCE

ReelLIFE SCIENCE is a national competition that challenges young people to engage with science, technology, engineering and maths while developing their communication and digital skills. Participants produce short 1–3 minute films or animations and entries can be submitted any time up to Friday October 11th 2024. The best videos can win €1000 for their school or youth group and will be screened at the Galway Science and Technology Festival in November during Science Week 2024.

To help you with your videos, we have scheduled a series of free, two-hour, online video production workshops for teachers and youth workers in the coming weeks, run by our amazing partners in Foróige. During the workshop, we will give you all the information you need to enter ReelLIFE SCIENCE, along with tips on how the films and animations are judged, how to plan and record films and animations, and recommended apps and tools to use with young people to edit films and create animations.

For the more experienced, we have organised advanced Film Editing and Green Screen workshops on March 14th, while our Midlands-based participants can avail of a hands-on, in-person workshop on stop motion and 2D Animation on March 20th.
