Take the ThingLink Science Creative Challenge

Today we are pleased to launch the first three ThingLink Creative Challenges using a new tool that will make it easier to curate and share great science images.

Join us in creating and curating the best science images, aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Create a ThingLink to support learning in the fields of life science, physical science, or earth and space science then submit it using our new Creative Challenges tool. The contest is open for 30 days and we will feature the best images during a webinar on February 17, 2015 to celebrate.

Ideas for Use

  • Use your interactive image as a content launcher to kickoff a unit or study.
  • Capture hands-on learning with a photo and ask students to annotate it with text, images, audio or video to document learning.
  • Facilitate a student driven learning activity fueled by research and creativity.

The possibilities are endless!

Bonus

In an effort to support the integration of science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM) we encourage you to include arts integration. To learn more about using ThingLink to support STEAM, please join us at our virtual presentation both at the Winter Online STEAM Conference on February 7th.
