A chance to win devices for the whole class just by making things real? Yes!
The creativity and critical thinking applied by students and the quality of submissions received blew us away! Thank you all for submitting!
CK-12 Foundation is providing a chance for students and teachers to win devices of their choice (iPads, Kindles, Nooks, or Chromebooks) for their entire classroom! The “Get-Real” competition is designed to stimulate creativity and critical thinking. Real world applications can make a difference in 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 that demonstrate how those concepts can be applied to our world. Think: How did the Egyptians build pyramids made up of perfect congruent triangles? Learn more
