Students from the schools of Engineering and Arts & Sciences submitted a total of 12 qualifying videos. Each video is 2 – 3 minutes long and students chose from one of the following themes: It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time, A Day in the Life, A New Discovery, and How it Works. All videos highlight various aspects of engineering at Johns Hopkins.

22_5The Gracias Lab at Johns Hopkins has developed a relatively easy, precise, and cost-effective process by which the 2D templates of semi-tethered "faces" can self-assemble into controlled 3D structures by utilizing the natural phenomena of surface tension. This video highlights the development, manufacturing process, and proposed functions (cell encapsulation devices and controlled drug delivery carriers) of our self-assembling nanoliter containers.

The videos the students created range from humorous depictions of life as an engineering student, to a mock wildlife documentary on the search and capture of the elusive mechanical engineering student, to animated depictions of research and research documentaries on specific projects.

44 Parker has come to the Johns Hopkins University campus in search of the elusive Mechanical Engineering Student also known as a Mech-E. Come along for a wild adventure through out the Homewood campus as our host observes, studies, and attempts to capture one of these amazing creatures. (Click video image to watch entire submission.)

Some groups of students created videos as part of a intersession course offered for this competition by the Digital Media Center. The DMC also assisted other students by providing instruction, workshops, and equipment.

Judges will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. The public was invited to vote for their favorite video, the People’s Choice Award. Unfortunately voting has closed but please go and check out all the videos submissions at:
