New Year, New Phenomena Lesson Plan Competition

Welcome to the New Year! ORISE wants you to engage students using phenomena! For example, what are the molecular characteristics of water that cause it to form a “water hat” when dumped on a person’s head, and why does someone’s tears in space look different than someone’s tears on Earth? Submit an original STEM lesson plan that uses phenomena to engage students for a chance to win. THREE teachers will win a trip to NSTA! The deadline is Friday, January 31.
