Science Superheroes Competition

The National Science Foundation and the National Nanotechnology Initiative have launched a competition called “Generation Nano: Small Science, Superheroes”. They’re asking high school students to design nanotechnology-enabled gear for an original superhero. Submissions include a brief technical description of their gear and either a video or comic showing their superhero using that gear, by Feb 2, 2016.
Three semi-finalists win a trip to the 2016 USA Science & Engineering Festival April 16-17, 2016 in Washington, D.C., where they will present their entry and compete for cash prizes.  Details on the competition can be found on the Generation Nano: Small Science Superheroes webpage.
Please join NSF and NNI in promoting the Generation Nano Competition by encouraging any interested high school students you know to enter, forwarding the below “eblast” to appropriate contacts, and engaging the public via social media by using one of the sample Tweets below:
