Stony Brook University College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS) is launching The Innovators of Tomorrow Video Contest to help budding scientists and engineers learn how to simply and effectively communicate their research related to STEM fields. The contest was created with support from Stony Brook’s Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science, which provides specialized programming to help scientists and health professionals communicate complex topics in clear and engaging ways.  The video submissions will be included in a Stony Brook STEM outreach campaign, led by CEAS faculty, to help educate K-12 students, teachers, guidance counselors and parents about education and careers in engineering.
