Sponsored by the University of Sydney, the Sleek Geeks Science Eureka Prize is a short film competition that encourages school students to communicate a scientific concept in a way that is accessible and entertaining to the public while increasing their science knowledge or, as prize patrons Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and Adam Spencer like to say, "Learn something without even noticing”. It is intended to support budding young scientists across the nation, who will be our future leaders in research, discovery and communication.

Each year, students are required to select a topic that aligns with the prescribed theme, which in 2024 is 'Energy'. Among other things, judges will be assessing each entrant's passion for their chosen topic, so students should carefully consider how they will explore the theme. In this classroom resource, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki guides students through the process of selecting a topic, demonstrating that the possibilities are endless! Provided that students link their story to the assessment criteria, there are no right or wrong answers.
