The Canada Science and Technology Museum invites students ages 4 to 19 from across Canada to participate in a national contest celebrating the role of the arts in science. Participants are asked to create an original work of art in answer to the question: How Does Science Inspire You?

The contest offers Canadian youth an opportunity to be part of the renewal and modernization of the Museum, scheduled to reopen in fall 2017. Five winning submissions will be integrated into a massive mural on the hoarding walls surrounding the Museum’s construction site in Ottawa this spring. Local graffiti artists from urban art organization House of PainT will replicate the winning artworks onto the walls, which will illustrate modern visions of science and technology through the eyes of established and fledgling graffiti artists.

Each winner will also have the choice of one of the following prizes, valued at $1,000, for their school or community organization:

Option 1  Prusa i3 Plus 3D printer kit with 4 spools of filament
Option 2
Set of six Sphero SPRK edition robotic balls 
Option 3
Set of 4 Dash programmable robots, and 2 sets of Magna Tiles

The deadline for submissions is June 6, 2016, at 5 p.m. EST.

Join students from across Canada who are inspired by science!

The Civic Laboratory for Environmental Action Research (CLEAR) at Memorial University of Newfoundland is pleased to partner with Let's Talk Science. Through this partnership we have created guides on how to build and use these devices in classrooms from grade 7-12, along with a participation and curriculum alignment guide so teachers can integrate the projects into Newfoundland and Labrador curriculum requirements.
