Final verdict reached in the competition!
The great commitment of the young people and the immense number of entries prove that Polish youth wants to learn in a modern way and knows how to do it.
The competition was organized to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Adamed Group. The prize was equipment sets for 30 school research laboratories, each valued at around PLN 10 thousand. In order to win, students had to prepare a lesson plan and use it as a basis for a 3-minute video on one of the following topics:
- Chemistry in food and cooking
- What would happen if? (the role of microorganisms in our world)
- What is the Universe made of?
- How does a cell process energy from food?
“A total of nearly 300 videos were submitted. Considering such fierce competition, the winners deserve even greater applause. The students and teachers proved to be incredibly creative, and we were very pleased with such a high turnout,” says Katarzyna Dubno, Head of the External Relations and Health Economics Department at Adamed Group.
All videos were published on-line, and were first ranked according to the Internet users’ voting. The 150 thousand on-line opinions posted helped to pre-select 100 most interesting works, out of which the competition jury chose 30 top entries.
“The turnout and the interest in the competition exceeded our expectations. But what we are most pleased with is the fact that the winning entries came from all over Poland, some of them from small towns,” remarks Katarzyna Dubno.
