The Christopher Columbus Awards Program combines science and technology learning with community problem-solving. Middle school students work in teams with the help of an adult coach to identify an issue they care about and, using science and technology, work with experts, conduct research, and put their ideas to the test to develop a solution. The award provides a $25,000 Foundation Community Grant and an all-expense-paid trip to Walt Disney World to attend the program’s National Championship Week, plus a U.S. Savings Bond of $2,000 for each student team member.
Deadline: February 6, 2012.
