2014 NESCent Evolution Video Contest: the finalists

15 Jun

For the fourth time, NESCent organizes the NESCent Evolution Video Contest. For me, this was a good motivation to make a new video just in time to send it in.

Now twelve video’s were chosen by NESCent to be shown next week at the Evolution meeting in Raleigh. I am happy that my video (number 10) is amongst the finalists! Have a look at the videos and if you’re in Raleigh next week, go and vote for your favorite! (Saturday 21 June, 8-10 p.m., Room 402, popcorn provided!)

All the entries can be found on the NESCent website. Here are the twelve finalists:
