How do you teach students to explore, understand, and find joy in the world around them?

Whether you teach an after-school STEM club, elementary science class, High School Chemistry, or Marine Biology at a university, if you have an awesome hands-on science lesson to share, then this contest is for you.

Create an Instructable that showcases your super science lesson and how you teach it in the classroom. To be eligible for the Classroom Science Contest, an Instructable must include:

- a formal lesson plan, OR
- a detailed description of how you use the project in the classroom

Be sure to note the grade level and science concepts your project incorporates in the lesson plan or description.

Show us how you make learning science concepts hands-on and fun for your students, and you could be eligible to win an awesome Amazon gift card. That’s right; we’re giving away Amazon gift cards to all the science-savvy winners!

In addition, we have a special Tinkercad judges prize for educators who incorporate the use of Tinkercad in their project.

The Classroom Science Contest is closed.
