The DuPont Challenge Elementary

We plan to participate in the “The DuPont Challenge Elementary Division” which is calling on all young scientists in grades K-5 to find out! Using a combination of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) skills and creativity, classrooms are asked to create their own science story that provides an answer to a Challenge that is facing their community.

Each grade level has three Challenge options to choose from, based on the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). With the help of their classroom teacher, students will research, observe, analyze, and discover their answer, presenting their findings in a science story book or presentation.
