Curtis Rising Stars Challenge

STEM Discovery Center

Next Competition: February 2, 2019

The Curtis Rising Stars Science Challenge introduces young students to science competitions and helps them develop teamwork skills. The competition is open to students in Grades K-4, who register through their schools.


Students are first prepared through pre-activities and prompts with their class at school. The experience culminates in the day-long competition at Orlando Science Center, when students put their STEM skills into practice.


All Curtis Rising Star educator resources are free to use whether or not you choose to participate in the competition.
