MITCNC Event
Kids Explaining Science of COVID-19
Apr 30 - Virtual Event

There is a lot of information coming at us all the time about the situation we're in, and we imagine kids have lots of questions.  As kids do, we imagine they're getting answers! What is an epidemic? What is a virus? Why is soap so good?

Would someone young in your life like to share an explanation of something they learned recently, or something their peers are curious about?  We're collecting submissions from kids ages K - 12, have the kids think about their best new knowledge and let us take a look!

Submission Deadline  April 30!

Fill out the form below

?   How it works  ?

  1. Submit your application by April 30th
