About the Challenge
Are you curious? Do you wonder how the world around you works? We want to know about your curiosity. Show us! Tell us! Join the 14th annual Curiosity Challenge!
The Challenge is a contest for 5-14 year olds that takes place every winter. Show us what you’re curious about by drawing a picture, writing an essay or poem, taking a photo, or doing something else entirely! Submit your entry with a description of your project and how it prompted you to explore the world around you.
Why are there different types of clouds? Why do we sneeze and what makes us yawn? Will we live on Mars? We want to know what YOU are curious about!
Resources & Printables
Find out all the details of the Challenge so your students can answer our question of endless possibility: What am I curious about?

Each year we honor a Curious Scientist and Curious Teacher as well. Past winning scientists include Kimberly Arcand, Danielle Wood, Dava Newman, and many more inspiring scientists.
