6th grade classes will be participating in the 2018 Flame Challenge!
The Flame Challenge is an international contest where 5th and 6th grade classes from all over the world are invited to judge scientists on their ability to clearly explain a scientific topic. The Flame Challenge was created by Alan Alda and is organized by the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University.

The question this year is "What is climate?"
