In this program, elementary school age children will have the opportunity to practice real science and work directly with cutting- edge scientists and engineers. Students are asked to propose an original question, problem or experiment that relates to the group of scientists involved with the competition. Winning students in each category will then have the opportunity to meet and work with these scientists.
