How are you challenging your STEM students this year? For 25 years, Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision has encouraged teams of K-12 students and teachers to create future technologies that improve society—all while aligning with the Next Generation Science Standards. Winning teams receive $10,000 U.S. Savings Bonds, an expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C. to present their ideas to scientific leaders and more.
All K-12 students and teachers in the U.S. and Canada are eligible for ExploraVision. Register now!
Teach younger students the engineering process and help older students prepare for college with ExploraVision. Not only does it give your students an exciting, hands-on learning experience, but teachers who coach an ExploraVision team can utilize the program broadly, incorporate the competition into their curriculum, and use it as a way to work toward the goals of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) by engaging students in problem solving and critical thinking.
