The National Institutes of Health Office of Science Education has announced a contest for K-12 kids who are US citizens or territory residents. The contest is to create a science experiment that can be used in an upcoming book for teachers. There are a number of rules the experiment must meet.
There aren’t big cash awards involved here – the big prize might be the bragging rights and the ability to include a national NIH prize on your college applications (for the older folks). It isn’t too complicated.
