SPARK Competition

In the Society for Science & the Public’s words:
Society for Science
“The Science Play and Research Kit (SPARK) competition challenges participants to reimagine the chemistry set for the 21st century and generate a new set of experiences and activities that encourage imagination and interest in science, recapturing the spirit of the chemistry set.

The contest, accepting submissions through January 7, 2014, is open to all U.S. residents over the age of 18. The top prize for the best science kit prototype is $50,000, with additional prizes given to runners-up and idea submissions.

SPARK encourages participants to submit both prototypes – projects that are operational and demonstrable – and ideations – project ideas that participants have not yet developed but have conceived with enough consideration to be plausible.

Competition details and more information can be found at: An active discussion will be held on Twitter using the hashtag #reimaginetheset.”
