What is SCORE?!?
SCORE! is designed to promote senior high school students’ hands-on science education and interest in entrepreneurship, as well as to support English language education and the goal of becoming a global citizenship.
- Do a science project—something new or something you’ve done before.
- Think about how the project can be used in business or daily life. How can you make money from it? How can you make life simpler or better?
