Rep. Scott Martin, R-Norman, is urging science teachers in Norman, Newcastle and Washington, OK, to compete in a national contest designed to inspire tomorrow's scientists.

The Make My LabWoRx contest is the latest initiative from Science WoRx, a mentoring and online resource network for science teachers sponsored by Astellas Pharma US Inc.

The winning school will receive a microscope and a $1,000 gift certificate to purchase lab equipment. The school also will advance to the final round of the contest, worth an additional $5,000 in funding for the school's lab.

To enter, science teachers must submit a two- to five-minute video of themselves performing a science demonstration related to health and human science, along with an accompanying lesson plan.

A panel made up of Martin and Astellas science professionals will judge entries on clarity, their inspiring nature and relevance to health and human science.

A winner of the Norman, Newcastle and Washington qualifying round will be announced April 5. Deadline for entries is March 28.
