ExploraVision Science Competition

Description

ExploraVision is a science competition for K12 students of all interest, skill, and ability levels. Entrants must be currently enrolled in and attending a public, private, or home school in the United States or Canada. The competition encourages students to combine their imaginations with the tools of science to create and explore a vision of a future technology. Students work in groups of two, three or four, and are guided by a team coach and an optional mentor. Each team selects a technology, or an aspect of a technology, which is present in the home, school, or community, or any other technology relevant to their lives. They will explore what the technology does, how it works, and how, when, and why it was invented. The students must then project into the future what that technology could be like 10 years in the future and determine what scientific breakthroughs need to occur to make it a reality. Winners get up to $240,000 in savings bonds: $10,000 savings bond for each first-place team member and $5,000 savings bond for each second-place team member.
