for the animation titled:

The Big Field of Small Things: Nanotechnology

Animation description:

My inspiration was the IEEE Spark issue about Nanotechnology. I liked the ferrofluid at a local science center and I thought this would be a neat topic, combining my interests and my hobbies. I have been using Blender since early 2012, when I was nine.

for the animation titled:

Nanotechnology Based Brain Surgery

Animation description:

The animation proposes the development of future technologies that help the brain cortex regeneration through the use of “Artificial Dendrimer-based Cortical Neurons”. The Spark Nanotechnology description of dendrimers has been the source of inspiration.

Congratulations to our two winners and to all who challenged themselves to develop an innovative animation!

About the Competition

The IEEE Educational Activities Board recently hosted the IEEE Spark Innovation through Animation Competition to excite pre-university students about engineering, computing, and technology. IEEE members, student members, graduate student members and IEEE young professional members were invited to encourage 12-18 year-olds from within their family, friendship circle, or local schools to participate in the competition.  The member acted as a nominee and mentor for that student(s).

Competition participants were required to create an animation based on a topic covered in a current / prior edition of IEEE Spark. (spark.ieee.org) Entries could have been developed with or without the use of technology.

The judges’ choice winner was selected based on several judging criteria outlined in the Official Rules. The people’s choice winner was determined by earning the most ‘likes’ on the IEEE EAD Facebook page during a designated time period.

Winners receive an IEEE plaque, a congratulatory letter to their school, a t-shirt, and their animation announced and featured in the next issue of IEEE Spark – Engineering Inside…Animation.
