The Institute for Global Environmental Strategies, or IGES, invites young scientists and artists to explore biodiversity. There are many different types of life on Earth -- from bacteria to insects to plants and animals. Biodiversity is everywhere. Students in grades 2-4 are encouraged to learn more about the forms of life in a particular place -- what types of life can be seen? What types of life are hard to see? Do the different types of life interact with each other?
Students should investigate these questions, and create a piece of artwork (no larger than 16"x20") to show what they have learned. First-, second-, and third-place artists will receive a $100, $75, and $50 gift card, respectively, framed color certificates and their artwork will be showcased on the IGES website.
