    About ExploraVision

    More than just a student science competition

    Since its inception in 1992, more than 350,000 students from across the United States and Canada have participated in Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision. It's a fun and engaging program that can inspire a lifelong love of science, technology and innovation for students and teachers alike.

    What is ExploraVision?

    The ExploraVision competition for K-12 students engages the next generation in real world problem solving with a strong emphasis on STEM. ExploraVision challenges students envision and communicate new technology 20 years in the future through collaborative brainstorming and research of current science and technology.

    ExploraVision is a science competition that goes beyond the typical student science competition and into what it takes to bring ideas to reality. A teacher will sponsor and lead his/her students as they work in groups of 2 – 4 to simulate real research and development. A teacher will guide his or her students as they pick a current technology, research it, envision what it might look like in 20 years, and describe the development steps, pros & cons, and obstacles. Past winners have envisioned technologies ranging from a hand-held food allergen detector to a new device to help people who have lost limbs regain movement in real time. To download an ExploraVision brochure, please click here.

    Who can participate?

    ExploraVision is designed for K – 12 students of all interest, skill and ability levels. The competition is open to students enrolled in public, private or home school in the United States and Canada. See our full eligibility requirements here.

    The Southern Appalachian Science and Engineering Fair (SASEF) is the premier science and engineering competition for students in middle and high school in our 23-county service area of East Tennessee. We have promoted teaching the scientific method in science, engineering and math since 1952.

    The fair is sponsored by the University of Tennessee and many local companies and agencies. It is held at the UT Thompson Boling Arena during the first week of April. There are two divisions of competition -- Junior Division for middle school students, grades 6 - 8, and Senior Division for high school students, grades 9 - 12.


    Past-President Al with our colleague and friend, A.E., at our Southern Appalachian Science & Engineering Fair (sasef.com; 23 counties in E. TN; 300 projects grades 6-12; 65th fair anniversary in 2017)!

    Here is a tried and true website to help the students review material and become familiar on how state testing will be formatted. An excellent use for review of covered concepts to determine if the material needs to be repeated for mastery.

    Got students who are in need of a visual lesson? This is an excellent site to use as a review before an assessment or for  introductory to a concept. Each video clip or power point has a seven question quiz review and is wonderful for use as a daily quiz or bell ringer. Have a student to work the mouse and move through the lesson at the class's pace. Also, have a student to read the question aloud as needed for appropriate accommodations.
