Cast your vote for Science City exhibit

Teams of students vying for a chance to build a future Science City exhibit are looking for your online vote.

The 20 finalists have emerged from a field of 560 entries from around the area, representing 35 districts and 128 schools in the Burns McDonnell Battle of the Brains.

The teams have created a diverse field of designs — showcasing bugs, bodily systems, magnets, aeronautics, space, robotics, tornadoes, energy and more.

The contest, which aims to inspire students in science, technology, engineering and math, also brings grants or cash awards up to $50,000 to the winning schools.

Voting will continue through Nov. 18 at www.battleofthebrainskc.com.
