PROGRAM OVERVIEW

STUDENTS INNOVATE FOR A BETTER AMERICA COMPETITION© is a FREE, interactive, Internet-based competition, targeting students in science grades 6-12. The objective of the program is to foster an understanding of how science is a driving force in America's economy and focuses on encouraging students to consider careers in science.

The STUDENTS INNOVATE FOR A BETTER AMERICA COMPETITION© is a pilot program offered to 50 high schools and 50 middle schools. It will bridge the gap between science taught in the classroom and science practiced in the real world in both business and academic (college) settings, allowing students to better understand the crucial role of science for America's competitiveness in the global economy.

The program is administered by the National Museum of Education, Inc. in collaboration with Allegro Productions, Inc., producers of the award-winning Science Screen Report©, Science Screen Report for Kids©, and the Virtual Scientist Guest Lecture Series™ and is funded through a grant from the Motorola Foundation.

By engaging students in science through this innovative interactive initiative, creative young minds will be inspired to explore their true potential.
