Check out the National Geographic Education: Engineering Exploration Challenge for young engineers!
Between now and May 1, 2014, develop a solution to a challenge below and you could be chosen to participate in a National Geographic Google+ Hangout. During the Hangout, your solution could be tested by National Geographic engineers in the top-secret Engineering Lab! The National Geographic Kids Engineering Exploration Challenge is open to all persons ages 6-18 worldwide.
How to Participate
1. Choose your challenge. Try one, two, or even all three!
2. Think like an engineer.
Check out the National Geographic Engineering Process. This is the same process that National Geographic explorers use to solve problems.
3. Get busy!
Now, follow the Engineering Process to design, build, and test your solution. Your solution probably won’t work the first time, and that’s OK—failure is part of the engineering process. Change it and try again!
4. Tell us about your solution for a chance to have your solution tested by National Geographic Engineers during a live Google+ Hangout.
Once you’re satisfied with your solution, failure or success, submit it to National Geographic using the instructions at the bottom of this page. We want to hear about solutions that work and ones that don’t!
