Discovery Education and Intel Corporation today announced the expansion of Curiosity in the Classroom, a partnership designed to extend learning opportunities found in Discovery Channel’s television series CURIOSITY. The expanded website will feature new lesson plans and activities that create STEM connections across various subjects.
CuriosityintheClassroom.com, an interactive, educational tool, contains curriculum examining topics such as artificial intelligence, communications, computers, nanotechnology and robotics.
The updated site now features new topics, integrated into multidisciplinary lesson plans and activities for English/Language Arts and World History.
The partnership also features “Catch Me Being Curious,” a national sweepstakes that will award a dream vacation of exploration and discovery. One grand prize winner, to be selected in December 2012, will receive a vacation for four to an exciting U.S. destination, including the Grand Canyon National Park; Boston, MA; San Antonio, TX; or Philadelphia, PA. Entrants also have the chance to win a trip to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix, AZ, an Intel Ultrabook laptop computer and Curiosity prize packs.
