WOODBURY — Who’s up for a challenge?

Nonnewaug’s Science National Honor Society is hosting a virtual science experiment contest and needs participants. The experiment can be quick and simple, and it does not need to be an original experiment or design.

Here are some things to keep in mind for those interested in participating:

  1. Think about safety before starting.
  2. Never eat or drink during an experiment.
  3. Do not touch, taste, or inhale chemicals or chemical solutions.
  4. Dispose of waste properly.
  5. Look sharp and wear appropriate and protective equipment if necessary.
  6. Don’t forget to look at the audience and speak clearly.
  7. Tell the audience why this experiment was chosen.
  8. Include a question, hypothesis, sources, and include whether results were surprising.

Students must shoot a video performing the experiment and submit it through Google Classroom. Submissions are due by Jan. 31. The top three winners, as judged by the honor society, will receive prizes — and their videos might be shared with younger students in Region 14. The first-place prize will be a $25 gift card, followed by $15 for second place and $10 for third place. 

Remember to have fun, relax, and smile! For additional information about the contest, visit Nonnewaug’s Whole-School Google Classroom.
