What's Happening at ORISE

  • ORISE is hosting two educator competitions for October!

    Lights, camera, teach! As teachers across the country settle into a virtual or hybrid model of a classroom this school year, ORISE wants to help your virtual teaching go as smoothly as possible. Submit a lesson plan that converts an in-person, interactive lesson to an at-home digital lesson plan to win a complete video studio package for all your virtual teaching needs!

    To celebrate National Chemistry Week, ORISE wants to award three teachers with sets of 30 at-home, reusable lab kits for their classroom. To enter into this competition, teachers of any grade level should submit a STEM activity that students can complete at home.

  • Fall undergraduate scholarship competition

    ORISE is hosting a research-based scholarship challenge for undergraduate students! The challenge is for students to develop an infographic to communicate the current leading ways to purify drinking water. UNICEF and WHO report that one in three people worldwide do not have access to safe drinking water. Although the United States has one of the safest drinking water supplies in the world, it is an ongoing challenge to protect it. Your infographic could win you a $5,000 scholarship! The competition deadline is Monday, Nov. 30, 2020.
