ExploraVision is a science competition that encourages K – 12 students to work in groups to simulate real research and development teams. Students can select any technology from something as basic as a water fountain to something as complex as nanotechnology. The team imagines and explores what that technology could be like 20 years from now and prepares an in-depth report that conveys its vision to others. It's a hands-on, minds-on project that inspires students and fuels imagination.
