In collaboration with the Atlanta Science Festival and HowStuffWorks, the 2016 WEBChallenge theme is How Stuff Will Work- IN SPACE! This year, the competition invites students to design a website that identifies a problem and how they believe it will be addressed by using space technology.
Participation is open to all Georgia middle school students in grades 6-8. Teams will consist of 2-4 students with one school approved adult advisor or school faculty member. School organizations, private schools, and home schools are also eligible to register.

Lockheed Martin's Code Quest is an annual computer programming competition where teams of 2-3 students each work together for 2.5 hours to solve problems by using JAVA programming to complete the “quest.” The problem set consists of 15-20 challenging problems created by Lockheed Martin engineers and computer programmers. For a glimpse into what Code Quest is like, visit www.lockheedmartin.com/codequest and watch our 2015 Code Quest video. Code Quest 2016 will take place on Saturday, April 30, 2016.

The Cobb Elementary Science Fair will be held on its original date of March 19th at Walton High School. We had considered shifting the date to January 30th to coincide with the Middle-High School Science Fair but we have decided not to do this for the time being. In addition, while we have promoted the event primarily for grades 3-5, you are welcome to register top K-2 projects if you have any quality projects that are completed at this level. Please see the Science Olympiad link: www.ccsdscience.com/k-5.html
for updated information. Please register your projects by March 4th.
