How do I choose a challenge?
The challenge is totally up to the exhibitor!

Examples include: pipette challenge, pH testing task, accurate temp reading, guess what is in the electron microscope or microscope image, how fast can you get geared up in full personal protective gear? The possibilities are endless.

Be creative and out of the box! But please keep the challenge related to science or at minimum, have some aspect of science included either in the accessories or concept (beakers, scales, etc.).
