Science Raps Competition

Does science fagizzle your nizzle? Prove it .... by entering the Science Raps Competition. Run annually by the Alimentary Pharmabiotic Centre in University College Cork, the competition is open to all second level students in Ireland and it has some awesome prizes. 

To enter the competition students need to compose, perform and video a rap based on this year's Science Week theme - the “Chemistry of Life”. Entries are asked to take inspiration from everyday life - from lifesaving medication to microchips in our mobile phones, from the beauty products we use to the food and water we consume. 

Prizes of an iPad or iPod are on offer for the 2 categories: 16 years and under and 17 years and over. To enter simply video your own Science Rap, upload on YouTube and send the link with a completed application form to apc@ucc.ie. The closing date for receipt of entries is Tuesday, November 8th 2011. Winning entries from the 2009 and 2010 Science Raps Competitions can be viewed on the Pharmabiotic YouTube Channel. Below is last year's winner entry (in the 17 year old catergory) - E-MC Rory.
