Expo Fest is the Perfect Fit for Next Generation Science Standards

Skills21 is happy to share the NGSS Challenge and both the Level 1 & 2 Skills21 STEM Academy Challenge align with Next Generation Science Standards. Expo Fest aligns nicely with the Crosscutting Concepts outlined in both the Science and Engineering Practices. We'd be happy to work closely with your science department to incorporate NGSS through out your curriculum.

Skills21 will hold two 84 Hour Film Challenges this year. The Fall 84 Hour Film Challenge will run from Friday, December 2, through Monday, December 5, 2016 and the Spring 84 Hour Film Challenge will run from Friday, March 17, through Monday, March 20, 2017.
