.The Kids’ Science Challenge is a wonderful competition for 3rd-6th graders. Created by Jim Metzner, producer of the national radio show Pulse of the Planet and funded by The National Science Foundation, the contest encourages elementary school age children to think and act like real scientists.
Now in its third year, the way it works is that students are asked to propose a question, problem or experiment to one of the participating scientists that they would like to solve. The winning students will, in addition to other fun prizes get to go work with their scientists to see if they can find answers to their questions. The first 1,000 kids who nter will receive a free science kit.
This year’s participating scientists and challenges are:
Magical Microbes - These tiny creatures (bacteria, germs, viruses) help us in many ways—like making yogurt and cleaning up oil spills! The winner who thinks up a new use for microorganisms will work with scientists from the University of Massachusetts and New York University to think of a new way that microbes can help us.
Super Stuff for Sports – Can you come up with a new idea for a material that helps make your favorite sport safer or more fun? The winner in this category will work with materials scientists at the University of Southern Mississippi or at K2 Sports.
Sensational Sounds – Starting with the concept of making air vibrate to make a sound, the winner in this category will work with Bart Hopkin, Northern California-based composer, musical instrument builder and head of the company Experimental Musical Instruments to build a new and unique musical instrument.
In addition to the free science kits, winners’ prizes will include visits to world-class science museums, aquariums, amusement parks, VIP tours at cool places, as well as microscopes and great science kits from Thames & Kosmos and the Academy of Science for Kids.
