Gravity Games

Design, build and race your own “soap box”-type car in the North Carolina Gravity Games! This statewide competition is hosted by Google in cooperation with Appalachian State University and North Carolina Science Festival annually in Lenoir.

Science Spotlight

Science Spotlight gets high school students exploring science issues in the news, incorporating higher order thinking skills with classroom deliberation, and interaction with an expert in the field.  Science Spotlight has been engaging students across the state with interdisciplinary topics that touch on important environmental science, chemistry, civics, and economic concepts effecting our state and beyond.

We are in the process of reworking our Science Spotlight curriculum and offerings check back mid-September to see what’s new!
