Abstract: 

The Kids' Science Challenge (KSC), the premiere elementary school science competition in the US, is a free, nationwide science competition for students in grades 3 through 6. Students submit experiments and problems for REAL scientists and engineers to solve. Then a panel of educators, scientists, and engineers judges the submissions.

The KSC engages kids to use their creativity to make connections and innovate on our current conceptions of how things work. By participating in the competition, engaging in KSC activities and following the experiences of the winners, all students learn more about the process of innovation and about how those curious "what if" questions are the foundation of scientific thinking.
