The Toshiba/NSTA ExploraVision Awards Program encourages students to explore a vision of future technology by combining their imaginations with the tools of science. In order to compete you need a teacher to sponsor you and a group of 2 – 4 students.

Your task is to select a technology and try to imagine what it will be like 20 years down the road. In addition, you need to think about what aspects of science or technology need to change in order for the changes to become possible. Finally, you need to develop a report that shares your predictions.
