Can you explain science to an 11-year old?


The 2014 Flame Challenges dares scientists to answer a fundamental question about the world around us in a way that an 11-year-old can understand and appreciate. This year's question is, "What is color?". Answers will be screened for accuracy by scientists and then judged by a panel of 11-year-olds. The entry deadline is March 1, 2014.


Two winners — in written and visual categories — will receive a trip plus VIP tickets to the World Science Festival, May 28 to June 1, in New York City. For rules and other details, visit
