The Peel Science Animation Festival is intended to promote scientific literacy and communication at secondary school level. Its direct connection to the Ontario curricula, in effect, offers creative opportunity for students to understand science concepts in depth and illuminate others with their perspectives.

The Peel Science Animation Festival focuses on two challenge options:

I-LEARN Challenges
This option requires you, as contest participants, to independently conduct research on a given curriculum based topic. Using your creativity and an animation technology, you will then produce an animation or motion picture to explain the topic.

I-ENVISION Challenges
This option requires you, as contest participants, to interpret an excerpt containing a novel idea or mechanism which is taken from a recent research article or student thesis. Using your imagination, creativity and an animation technology, you will then illustrate the given description in the form of animation or motion picture.

Registration deadline: October 13, 2013

Closing date: November 30, 2013

Awards Ceremony: February 22, 2014
