Congratulations to our 2014 Flame Challenge Winners! The written category winner, Melanie Golob, is from Olympia, Washington, and the visual category winner, Dianna Cowern, is from San Diego, California. Hundreds of scientists tackled last year’s question, “What is color?” and over 27,000 11-year-olds from around the world reviewed and critiqued their entries. Enjoy the live-stream of the World Science Festival awards ceremony, hosted by Alan Alda, and meet the winners and hear a little bit about what influenced their entries.
