Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision

ExploraVision is a competition sponsored by Toshiba, Inc. and the National Science Teachers' Association (NSTA). The competition, which is open to all students in grades K-12 attending a school in the U.S., Canada, U.S. territory or a Department of Defense school, provides students a chance to "develop skills that will prepare them well for the 21st century workplace." Through ExploraVision, students work in teams to select a technology, research how it works and why it was invented, and then give their projections for how that technology may change in the future. The website lists some of the previous winning ideas as "things as simple as ballpoint pens and as complex as satellite communications." As part of the competition, student finalists plan, design, and create Web pages to convey their ideas, which are then accessible from the ExploraVision website. More information on how to enter the competition and prizes awarded is provided on this website. The Tips for Teachers section offers some suggestions for ways to prepare students for the competition and video footage shows some highlights from the 2004 Awards Weekend in Washington, D.C.
