Geology student wins prize in the UGA Capturing Science Contest!


UGA Libraries Capturing Science Contest


Geology major Prachi Patel was part of a team that won 4th place for their video Quantum Computers: Searching for the Future.


In this animated video, Prachi Patel, Grace Watterson, and Jasmine Querido explore quantum computing, a topic that can be a bit of a head scratcher. The team has been collaborating since high school, and it shows. The video's narration is clear and compelling, and the visual storytelling is clever, skillful, and a delight to watch (and rewatch). We believe that Prachi, Grace, and Jasmine succeed in their goal, stated in their cover letter, to “shed some light on a developing and intriguing topic” through visualization. For novices to quantum computing, the video serves as a wonderful introduction. It can also be an entertaining refresher to those already familiar to the topic. 

Your gift helps to fund research, travel, and field experience for students and faculty.
