Educators! Put the “construct” in constructivism by sharing the hands-on projects you do with your students. Share your project-based learning skills with thousands of like-minded teachers searching for engaging academic projects to supplement their curriculum. Help make learning relevant and engaging and fun.

We want educators to show off the hands-on projects they use with their pupils. Post anything that someone might teach in a formal setting. This contest is open to Instructables, Photos, Videos, and Guides with a learning objective explicitly stated in the introduction.

Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Education Contest. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.
