Grades K–2: February 6, 2021
Grades 3–5: February 20, 2021
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 equivalent grades K-5, who register through their educational organization.
Students are first prepared through pre-activities and prompts with their class during school time. The experience culminates in the day-long competition at Orlando Science Center when students put their STEM skills into practice.
Curtis Rising Stars has become increasingly popular in the community, to best serve your needs we have expanded. Rising Stars is now Orlando Science Center’s elementary aged competition that will be hosted over two different days. Grades K–2 will compete on February 1, and Grades 3–5 will compete on February 15.
In addition to expanding this event we are also increasing support for educators.
Our goal is to ensure you are comfortable and confident in implementing the pre-activities and have a firm grasp of what to expect during competition day.
Space is limited; completing the application does not guarantee a spot in the competition. All Curtis Rising Star educator resources are free to use whether or not you choose to apply to the competition.
