It's time for students with a knack for communicating, and budding filmmakers with an interest in science, to pull out their cameras.

Entries for the 2017 Australian Museum Sleek Geeks Science Eureka Prize are now open!

There is a prize pool of $10,000 up for grabs to be shared between the winners and their schools, and finalist representatives also win a trip to Sydney for the Australian Museum Eureka Prizes Award Dinner.

Sponsored by the University of Sydney, the prize encourages students to explore a scientific concept, discovery or invention, or test their own scientific hypothesis in a 1-3 minute film.

Entries close 7pm AEST Friday 5 May 2017.
