A project can be done in any category with the Climate Change focus. The best project will be awarded by $150.
If you agree that human activities cause a drastic change in climate in this century, prepare your project around this theme, or you can simply bring your evidences to prove that the climate change is not caused by human activities.

"In this country, there is no other place I have seen this many kids come together with enthusiasm and genuine support in schools. It is evident that these students have the encouragement and education to become the next Bill Gates, or Steve Jobs" (March 2012).

"I just felt a real sense of knowing that someone here today, some young person is going to do something great. I am just happy to say that I was here at a time when they start their careers" (March 2011).
"Thank you very much for grooming our future scientists" (March 2010).

I think STEM from the standpoint of ‘you’ve got a lot of talented kids,’ but they end up in, you know, classrooms that really don’t realize their potential. And through the STEM program it’s pretty obvious that many of these kids are able to reach that potential and go way beyond it.

I have worked for multiple CMO's, both local and nationally-based, and I have never been a part of a CMO-organized event like CONSEF. This was truly an amazing experience for our students and staff.
