We cordially invite UMCS students and high school students belonging to the UMCS Partner Schools program to take part in the Santander contest | "Science is better than chocolate". All you need to do is record a video of up to 60 seconds proving the thesis that science is better than chocolate and then share it on the TikTok platform (public video) with the appropriate hashtags.
