Calling All Young Innovators!
I love a good idea that really gets kids thinking, and I know that a lot of you do too. Big Hero 6, a Disney movie opening on November 7, has teamed up with XPrize, to offer a contest for children between the ages of 8 - 17. It is designed to really get those creative juices flowing. Entrants need to think about, and then describe in a video, how they would use S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts, or mathematics) to solve a problem, big or small, that effects their school, community, or even the world.
SIX winners will win a trip to LA to walk the Red Carpet at the Hollywood Premiere of the movie. They will also get a behind-the-scenes tour of Walt Disney Animation Studios.
The entry form and rules can be found here: https://www.xprizechallenge.org
Good luck to all who enter!
