How do National Geographic explorers do research, and get such great photos, in the wild? National Geographic invites kids to try and solve the technical problems explorers face, in a new Kids Engineering Exploration Challenge.
Until May 1, 2014, kids age 6-18 can develop and submit a solution to one of three challenges: constructing a camera that can withstand an attack from an animal; creating a camera that can be raised and lowered into a forest canopy; designing a wearable power system that can generate electricity to charge devices in the field without use of an electrical outlet. Some submitted solutions will be tested in National Geographic's top-secret Engineering Lab.
