Congratulations to the teams that competed in the 2014 Georgia Tech–COPE Research Video Contest! Videos were evaluated on their research content as well as the teams ability to present their information. 

This year's Grand Prize is awarded to  for their video entitled, "The Art of Spin" by Nils Persson and Dalsu Choi. The video illustrates the aggregation of P3HT using stop-motion animation and related transistor fabrication techniques to the popular backyard activity, spin art, using a homemade machine.

Nils and Dalsu are in the group of Elsa Reichmanis in the School of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering (ChBE). The team is awarded the grand prize for receiving the highest overall score. Congratulations Nils and Dalsu! 

Nils Persson is a second-year graduate student studying the mechanisms of formation and properties of ordered structures of poly-3-hexylthiophene. He has been producing videos since junior high, from live concerts to short action films and sitcoms.

Dalsu Choi is a fourth-year graduate student working on the development and theoretic analysis of novel solution processing methods for effective molecular assembly of pi-conjugated polymers.

Georgia Tech-COPE would also like to mention the other students that submitted videos in the contest and thank them for their participation.
