Do you have Smithsonian-caliber intelligence? Then put yourself to the test with our new challenges from the Smithsonian Institute. Today we’ve added eight exciting new challenges on a wide variety of topics. These are some of our most unique challenges to date and will require students to critically analyze concepts in order to produce original content for submission.
One challenge asks students to consider how they would use a GIS (Geographical Information System) to design a better city. Would you build a gondola-lift system for a city with large hills or maybe utilize gondola-boat transport for a city built around rivers? Another challenge requires students to discuss what makes a piece of art or culture American, and asks them to create a specifically American one act play or short film. Other topics range from using statistical analysis to prevent disease to the logistics of constructing a sustainable human colony on Mars.
These challenges offer a chance for students to show not only their intellect, but also their creative sides. There are eight in all so take a look now and get some ideas brewing in your brain. We can’t wait to see what our students bring to the table for these exciting opportunities to showcase their skills and articulate their thoughts.
