Opens the third edition of  ’Science of the City‘!!

IMATGE WEB

Look at your city with different eyes. Look at it with a scientific or a technological approach.  What do you see? Well-known concepts, new challenges, discoveries and discoverers or experiments in action. Science of the City wants to collect multiple scientific and technological looks of a city made by its citizens.

La Mandarina de Newton, within its area of research and work Co-Creating Cultures, and after the success of the first and second edition, launches the third edition of Science of the City.

Science of the City takes places in Barcelona, Madrid, Silicon Valley, Paris, Zagreb, Amsterdam and other cities. Cities are excellent educational resources. How can we use them? How can we relate scientific concepts to our cities? Can we build a bridge from citizens to researchers though showing citizens concerns? Can citizens point to new challenges? Do cities show the history of science? Science of the City wants to find some answers to these questions.

If you want to participate in the process, start by entering the video contest and send a two-minute video that relates cities and science in your own way. For example, “How is traffic handled in a city?.”  If you look carefully around you, you will be surprised by the number of scientific phenomena that can be observed without even leaving your city. If, however, you still have doubts about how they could be shown on your clips, you can go to La Mandarina de Newton’s YouTube channel and find some sample clips.

The best videos submitted to the contest will be selected by a jury and by popular vote. There are two 500€ prizes for the most creative video and the most voted by the public. On top of that, some videos will be aired on TV.

From now and until April 24th you will be able to send us as many videos as you want and we will upload them at our platform. Chose an idea, make a 2 minutes video, upload it at your Youtube account and send us (cocreatingcultures (@) gmail.com) a short description and the link.

During this time you can also watch the videos of other participants, comment on them, ask other people in the platform for advice on your own videos and, finally, vote on the proposals.
