Use Science Buddies with Google Classroom
Science Buddies Launches Google Classroom Integration

Science Buddies Launches Google Classroom Integration!
We are excited to announce that teachers who use Google Classroom can now create assignments and science project tasks directly from the Science Buddies website. 

With our new Google Classroom integration, adding assignments like "Use the Topic Selection Wizard to find projects of interest" or "Review steps of the Scientific Method" is as easy as pushing the "Share to Classroom" button on relevant Science Buddies pages! We've also created a master Google Classroom Science Project Assignments share page that lets you assign all the steps of a science project from one convenient location:

We hope you will try this new capability and give us feedback using the feedback link on the Google Classroom Science Project Assignments page. We want to know how we can make this feature even better!

2016 Fluor Engineering Challenge
Take the 2016 Fluor Engineering Challenge_

The 2016 Fluor® Engineering Challenge has started! This year, K-12 students are challenged to design a marble sorting machine that can sort marbles based on size. Allowable materials are limited, and students will need to brainstorm, prototype, test, and troubleshoot to come up with a working machine and a final score. Last year, students created exciting and innovative solutions to the Balloon-powered Vehicle challenge. We can't wait to see how they tackle this year's marble sorting machine challenge! 

The marble sorting machine challenge is a fun hands-on engineering project for students to do at home or in the classroom, and it is a great activity to tie in with Engineers Week! 

For inspiration, see: Make a Marble Sorting Machine
To view the project and materials list, see: Marble Machine

Students in certain locations who complete the challenge will be entered in a random drawing for a cash award for their school or organization. Entries can be submitted through March 11, 2016.
