What's Happening at ORISE

  • Two young female students using a computer

    Calling all K-12 Students: STEM in Film Student Challenge

    Movies always have the coolest and craziest things happening, but are they always realistic? Well, grab your fuzzy blankets, popcorn, and get ready to kick back your feet, because ORISE wants you to watch a movie and find out! We are asking that you pick a scene from a film and research the science behind it. You can then explain whether this scene is scientifically possible or not for a chance to win an awesome prize! TWELVE prizes will be awarded with three winners per grade band.

    The deadline for this contest is September 30. Visit the K-12 Competitions for Students page for more info!
