The theme for the 2017 Science without Borders® Challenge is “Reef SuperSpecies.”
For this year’s Challenge, use your imagination to create a piece of art that illustrates a made-up Reef SuperSpecies. A Reef SuperSpecies is an organism (plant or animal) that has found a way to adapt to a deadly threat facing coral reef ecosystems. You can make up an organism or base your organism off of an already existing reef organism.
The deadline is Monday, April 24, 2017 by 11:59 pm (Eastern Standard Time).
