The National Science Foundation's Kids’ Science Challenge winners have been announced.

Now in its second year, The Kids’ Science Challenge is a nationwide annual competition for 3rd to 6th graders to submit experiments and problems for a select group of scientists and engineers to solve. The winning students, chosen from more than 1600 entries, will collaborate with scientists and engineers to see their ideas come alive.

Participating Scientists and Engineers for the Year Two Challenge, which launched October 1, 2009 include:

Bio-Designs – The winning student will work with Christopher Viney, Professor, Engineering, UC Merced and engineers at the University of Maryland to explore a problem using the world of nature as a springboard for new ideas.

Imagining Sports on Mars - Working with engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, a budding engineer will come up with a game suitable for playing on the mysterious Red Planet.

Detective Science - Students will work with forensic and environmental scientists at Syracuse University to use the science of detection to solve a real life mystery.
