Battle of the Brains Kansas CityIt's almost time to go back to school (where did the summer go?!) And that means it's time to start putting your Battle of the Brains exhibit ideas in action.

We're thrilled with the interest so far; more than 100 schools have registered to be a part of our partnership with Science City that provides a once-in-a-lifetime chance to design the next great Science City exhibit. At stake? A piece of a $130,000-plus grant for STEM education at your school.

To help educators prepare their students for the exhibit design process, we're hosting a series of workshops to give you information and answer any questions.

As an added incentive, attending the workshop and fulfilling a few other simple commitments will get you an hour of credit from Baker University. We're also paying the tuition for the first 50 teachers who sign up!
