Glass batteries have invaded the news - but what does this latest technological development by John Goodenough and Helena Braga mean?
Lithium ion battery technology has remained unchanged over the past 40 years, carrying the same risks of short-circuiting and producing dangerous explosions. The unique chemistry of the glass battery actually avoids that problem altogether!

1. Who can take part?
Students in secondary school who have the permission of their parents or guardians can enter. People from any country can enter, but if the winners are outside of the Iberian Peninsula, the Balearic islands or the Canaries, the organization won't be able to cover the cost of the trip. In this case, the names of the winners would be made public at the Naukas event in Bilbao, but there wouldn't be a prize associated with it (NOTE - I'm sorry about that :s My understanding from the organisers is that trips can't be covered because the budget won't reach to cover international flights to CERN/Bilbao - but you should be able to receive the other prizes on offer).
2. How can you take part?
There are two ways, individually, or in a team. Teams may not have more than three members. Each contestant may participate with a single video.
3. What characteristics must the videos have?
Format and theme are free, and they must be 3-5 minutes in length. You can record in either an official language of the Spanish state or in English. Keep in mind that if you appear in your video you will need to include in your contest inscription a written permission from your parents or guardians so that your face can appear in the video.
If your video violates the law or is distasteful in nature it will be disqualified.
4. How do you enter?
It's very simple - you must film and edit the video, upload to YouTube or Vimeo and then, sign up to the competition: http://cienciaclip.naukas.com/inscripcion/ (pick the number of people in your team and fill in the form).
5. When's the deadline?
6. What are the categories and modalities?
There are three categories:
1 S - 13 - 14 yrs (approx - 1st two years of secondary)
2. M - 15-16 yrs (approx - last two years of obligatory secondary school)
3. L - anything above that (A Levels and above until the age of 18)
and two modalities:
7. How are the winners chosen?
The videos which don't break the rules will be displayed on the webpage and opened to public voting. The number of votes on the videos will form a third of the criteria of the judge's evaluation.
8. Who are the judges?
The judge will be formed by members of Cátedra de Cultura Científica de la UPV/EHU, Naukas members, Big Van y Scenio.
9. What will the judges be looking for?
In addition to the public votes, they will also be looking for creativity, originality, clarity and the rhythm of the exposition, as well as the difficulty and quality of the presented scientific content.
10. How many prizes are there?
There will be a total of 8 prizes. The six first, one per category (S, M and L) and per modality (YouTuber and Animation) to the best videos of each category in each modality. The judges will also give two special prizes - the best evaluated video, and a second special prize to the best work made by foreign students.
11. What are the prizes?
Those winners in either of the two modalities (youtuber or animation) who present the video individually will receive a complete kit for the construction and manouevre of a robot-dron Erle Spider, as well as a trip and stay at a hotel to attend the Saturday Naukas session in Bilbao 2017 for the winner and two adult companions (parents or teachers)
The winners of either modality (YouTuber or Animation) who present a team video will receive a complete kit for the construction and manouevre of a robot-dron Erle Spider, as well as a trip and stay at a hotel to attend the Saturday Naukas session in Bilbao 2017 for the winners and for four adult companions (parents or teachers)
The first special prize from the jury to the best video is a visit to CERN in Ginebra to up to four people, amongst which one of them, if applicable, will be the teacher.
The second special prize for the best work to foreign students will be an accreditative diploma, a loot of books and naukas t-shirts.
NOTE - the Latin American edition has different prizes, a trip to CERN, a GoPro session and a T6 Canon Rebel depending on the prize.
