STEAM Machine Children’s Art Contest
Discovery Station is pleased to host the STEAM Machine Children’s Art Contest!
The STEAM Machine Children’s Art Contest is designed to get children thinking about the world and the future. The theme for this contest is the Colonization of Mars.
In the coming decades, human beings will not only travel to Mars as astronauts – but they will live there! We want children to look into what challenges these astronauts will face (ie: food sources, shelter, energy sources, terraforming, oxygen) and to design a habitat that they feel would best suit the astronauts living on Mars. This habitat could be set during any period of time over the course of the next several hundred years.
This art contest is FREE and open to all students in grades 3 -5. Students must be enrolled in primary or secondary school, or the home school equivalent. Work will be judged in three categories, with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes awarded for each: 3rd grade ~ 4th grade ~ 5th grade
