Flame Challenge Asks “What is Color?”

Posted on: 01/09/2014
Scientists from around the world are encouraged to answer the question “What is Color?” in a way that 11-year-olds can understand for The Flame Challenge, an international competition begun in 2011 by actor and science advocate Alan Alda. Each year, a challenge question is chosen based on what’s on the minds of preteens. The deadline for answering this year’s question about color is March 11, 2014.

Scientists are asked to submit their answers in writing, video, or graphics to the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University. Entries will be judged by 11-year-olds from around the world. The winning scientists are brought to New York to be honored in June at the World Science Festival.

The Flame Challenge is sponsored by the American Chemical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
