Teachers may submit an unlimited number of student videos on our website between now and the February 27th deadline. Simply have your students view the five segments on this page from John Stossel's Tech Revolution Fox News hour, and create a 1-3 minute video to submit to our contest.
Students who are at least 18 years old may submit their own videos.
Technological innovation has changed our lives, mostly for the better. But some innovation raises safety questions. Some threatens existing businesses. What should America do about that?
John Stossel raises a few such issues in his TV special, Tech Revolution, but there are probably many others. After watching these five segments from John's special, create a 1-3-minute video on this topic, making a case for how you think government policy should deal with innovation in order to bring the greatest gains to society. Include your own examples of innovation at work, innovation that is being stifled by government rules, and/or negative results of too much or too little government oversight to illustrate your argument.
