Yardstick has collaborated with Explore learning, USA to bring path breaking, interactive simulations in Math and Science called Gizmos, straight to your phone and computer screens to wherever you are. Gizmos Virtual Championship is an effort to introduce students, teachers and schools to the amazing world of online simulations that foster deeper conceptual understanding and a culture of problem solving through STEM.
The contest is divided into three levels; School, Zonal and National. Winners from the school level would compete in the zonals and winners from zonals will qualify for the national level. This being an online contest, the participants would be required to have individual gadgets and a data connection.
Contest is open for students from classes 3 to 10.
Students can compete in three categories as per their grade level.
Category 1: Grade 3 to 5
Category 2: Grade 6 to 8
Category 3: Grade 9 & 10
Level 1 can be attempted by all students in a grade. It will involve using a Gizmo to solve a challenge which will be shared on the day of the competition itself.
Winners from each level will continue to compete in the same category for other two levels as well.
