For the love of science.
Since its inception in 1992, more than 300,000 students from across the United States and Canada have participated in the ExploraVision program. It's a fun and engaging project that can inspire a lifelong love of science for students and teachers alike.
What is ExploraVision?
ExploraVision is a science competition that encourages teachers to make science a part of their curriculum. As a teacher sponsor, you will lead your students as they work in groups of 2 – 4 to simulate real research and development. You will guide your students as they study a technology of interest and predict what that technology might be like 20 years from now. Teams will explore what is necessary to make their visions a reality. Past winners have envisioned technologies ranging from a self-cleaning toilet to a new method of treating diabetes.
Who can participate?
ExploraVision is designed for K – 12 students of all interest, skill and ability levels. The competition is open to students enrolled in public, private or home school in the United States and Canada. Click here to see the full eligibility requirements.
How do I get my students involved?
The most important step is educating them about the project. You can then either implement it as part of your curriculum or become a coach for the students who would like to participate. But if they don't know about it they'll never know if they want to register.
