Classrooms will venture through competition challenges to solve a remarkable real-life mystery — involving the most famous artist in history.
This interdisciplinary approach unites art history, science and mathematics to captivate students with a diverse range of interests.
Our prizes are generously sponsored by our competition partners, Ward’s Science, who have been the leading suppliers of science education equipment for 150 years.
