Science Related Contests

Filed under: Homeschooling — texased @ 6:26 pm

I have heard (I certainly wouldn’t know it from my experience) that there exists many homeschooling families with children who would much rather pursue a project rather than work with textbooks. Many even enjoy entering their projects in contests. I would think that entering academic contests could be a great way of exploring a subject while documenting it at the same time. Here are some contests you might consider for science for the upcoming year.

American Museum of Natural History Young Naturalist Awards

Young Epidemiology Scholars (YES) Competition

ExploraVision Awards

NASA Space Settlement Contest

Future City Competition
