What was the Get-Real Competition?

Winning the iPads or Kindles for the class for making things real? Yes!

CK-12 Foundation is providing a chance for students and teachers to win devices of their choice (iPads, Kindle, Chromebooks etc.) for their entire classroom! The "Get-Real"competition is designed to stimulate creativity and critical thinking. They can make a difference to the way we learn and teach and understand our world.  Students need to create practical examples (multiple submission formats allowed) using STEM K-12 concepts to demonstrate how those could be applied in our real world. Think: How did the Egyptians build pyramids made up of perfect congruent triangles? Check it out

Conducted over a period of six week and judged on several relevant criteria, this is the first of kind competition that helps involve students in applying their creativity to make concepts a reality for K-12 content. Learn more here
