The Insoluble Science Challenge - A Digital Film Competition
Penn State and Restek are teaming up to encourage students to become inventors! Do you ever come across problems that you wish you could solve? Now is your chance! This year's theme is "innovation and problem-solving," and we want you to solve a current problem. Your video should:
1) Identify a current problem people face--whether in your own everyday life, in your community, or on a global scale.
2) Propose a new solution to this problem that uses STEM (science, technology, engineering, or mathematics) to solve the problem. Make sure your solution is a new and unique process, procedure, product, etc.
3) Explain how your solution would realistically work and how it uses STEM principles.
There are two age groups: Grades 5-8, and 9-11 for the 2015-2016 school year. The prizes for both age groups are:
Full 2016 residential Science-U summer camp scholarship.
Full 2016 commuter Science-U summer camp scholarship.
$150 credit value for a 2016 Science-U camp scholarship
All submissions are due by January 31st, 2016! Register by January 3rd!
