The Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision Awards program, one of the world’s largest K –12 science and technology competitions, is now accepting entries for its 2009 competition. ExploraVision, sponsored by Toshiba and administered by NSTA, challenges teams of two to four students in the United States andCanada to research scientific principles and current technologies as the basis for designing innovative technologies that could exist in 20 years. A popular learning and motivational tool, many teachers use it as part of their science and technology curriculum.
Up to $240,000 in savings bonds will be awarded this year to student winners whose innovative ideas combine imagination with the tools of science. Toshiba laptop computers for schools and other prizes for students, teachers, and mentors will also be presented. Up to 32 winning students, their families, teachers and mentors will also receive a 5-day expenses paid trip to Washington, DC for a gala awards event. The deadline for the 2009 competition is January 28, 2009. For more information or an application for 2009, visitwww.cags.exploravision.org
