  • Videos may be humorous or serious, but must be aimed at educating and suitable for the general public.
  • Videos must contain information that is technically defendable.
  • Videos must include at least one image or scene from somewhere on the UT Austin campus.
  • Scenes from a CAEE lab, classroom or with a professor somewhere in the background are encouraged but not required.
