The ExploraVision competition, now in its 18th year, is an annual event that awards more than $240,000 in savings bonds each year to the winning teams. K-12 students in small groups (2-4), led by a teacher/coach, create a vision of a future technology relevant to their lives or to society in general.
Diane Pollitt, Gifted and Talented Educator at Heatherstone Elementary, Olathe, KS said, “I’ve been involved with ExploraVision for 17 of the program’s 18 years. I feel that through the use of a variety of hands-on, project-based learning experiences, and a process of questioning, exploration and discovery, students acquire learning skills they’ll use their entire lives.”
