Magic is about performing the impossible, but it’s science that defines that boundary. Such is the theme of Jason Latimer and Engineering.com‘s “Impossible Science Student Challenge,” a STEM-focused student competition they’ll be launching at the USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington DC this April.
The challenge is open to current middle school and high school students in the US and Canada. All the contestants have to do is use Engineering.com’s ProjectBoard to showcase their STEM-related projects and experiments. The winning team will earn their entire school a live magic show courtesy of Latimer, a Magic Grand Prix World Champion and curator of the Impossible Science stage show.
The competition goes live on April 6th and the deadline for submissions is June 15th. The winner will be announced on June 20th.
The USA Science & Engineering Festival Expo will run from April 7th to April 8th at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington DC. It’s the county’s largest celebration of STEM fields and will feature some 3,000 hands-on exhibits and over 30 stage shows. It’s a free event, though please make a donation if you can. Registration is open now.
