It’s not too late to submit your entry to the “What is a Germ?” Challenge being put on by ASBMB in conjunction with the Cambridge Science Festival. Submit your best explanation for answering the question “What is a germ?” — and frame your response so that an elementary school student can understand it. Why? Because they are the ones who will be judging you! Schools from the greater Boston area will be grading the entries and letting our participants know which ones they like best. Finalists will be invited to present their submissions before a live audience during the 2013 Cambridge Science Festival’s Curiosity Challenge on Sunday April 21! Email your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 25.
