This looks like a fun challenge brought to you by the folks who produce the Burn Notice TV series. For the Burn Notice Science Challenge, students 9-12 grade submit a 1500 word essay describing how they would build a solution to one of three problems:
- Loud and clear: covert communication
- Eye in the sky: improvised surveillance
- Do not disturb: covert alarm system
Students need an adult sponsor who will verify the originality of the work, and essays need to demonstrate the principals of scientific investigation.
