Middle School Educators
Recruit a team for the North Carolina Gravity Games
Design, build and race your own “soap box”-type car in the North Carolina Gravity Games! This statewide competition will be hosted in Lenoir, N.C., on April 13, 2013, by Google and Appalachian State University. Middle schools are eligible to enter teams in the “Gravity Only” and “Open Powered” divisions. Registration is open until March 15, but team spaces are limited, so register now so you won’t miss out on the fun!
Invite a Scientist to your school
The North Carolina Science Festival is recruiting dynamic and dedicated scientists across our state to share their excitement about science with your students. Selected to mirror the diversity in our state, these talented scientists will be available to visit North Carolina schools as part of the Festival in April 2013. The goal of each visit is to inspire your students to consider science and how it connects to their lives and career possibilities.
Application deadline: December 3, 2012
Please note: Your application does not guarantee a visit from a scientist. We’ll do our best to accommodate each school that applies. The number of schools we can accommodate will be dependent upon schedules of both the schools and the team of scientists.
Thanks for your interest!
Applications for the Festival’s “Invite A Scientist” program were due by Dec. 3, 2012, so our application process is now closed. We will notify selected schools as we are able to assign them with their very own scientist!
