The Kids Science Challenge – Grades 3 – 6

The National Science Foundation and other partners are sponsoring The Kids Science Challenge in grades 3 – 6.  The KSC is the premiere elementary school Science competition in the US and is a free, nationwide science competition for students. 

 All participating elementary students will learn more about the process of innovation and how those curious “what if” questions are the foundation of scientific thinking.

The winners in each of three categories will work directly with real scientists and engineers to test their ideas.

The Challenge: Can you invent a package that never ends up in a landfill?

The Challenge: Can you design a toy, game or experiment that enhances the life of a pet or zoo animal and demonstrates its particular intelligence?

The Challenge: Can you come up with a new way to preserve, cook, deliver or sustainably produce food in flight or on Mars?
