Hey Science Sketchers! We want to expand our library of videos explaining fundamental terms and concepts, and we need your help. The Fundamentals videos (like What is a Protein?) help make the research videos accessible to a broader audience by defining key science terms in a clear and simple way.

We have come up with a list of concepts (above) that are used often in our current collection of research videos. To enter our contest, create a 2-minute video defining one of these concepts by August 14th. Our three favorite entries will each be awarded $100!
