Team Leaders (teachers/administrators/parents) should apply here to Adopt-a-Planet. Selected teams will spend time prior to the race planning and creating visual and auditory displays to celebrate that particular object. Then, on race day, the team will be stand at the corresponding location along our race path (a scale model of our solar system, from the Sun to Neptune) and cheer the runners on as they pass. Potential ideas for displays include holding signs with fun facts, shouting planetary chants, dressing up in costumes, choreographing dances, and other creative ways to celebrate the science behind the objects in our solar system.
To apply, team leaders should complete this online form by March 24. We will be in touch to select the nine finalists by March 29. The selected schools will each receive a $200 grant for their school science/STEM program.
