Future Makers ran a competition that invited school-aged students to share their knowledge and understanding of the Hadron Collider in a short video to win a Future Makers prize pack.

With a total prize valued at nearly $1,250 this was one competition not to be missed!

Students were invited to create a short video that explains in simple terms exactly what the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is and what it does. Entrants limited their videos to one minute and uploaded their videos as per the competition guidelines.

Canterbury College student, Hunter took out the prize with his winning entry and enjoyed a weekend with his family at the World Science Festival Brisbane 2017.
