How to submit a guess

In each issue of Science Scope, we will publish a science-related image for your students to identify. When an image is published, teachers can submit a guess on behalf of their class through our website ( mysteryphoto), by e-mail (, please include "Mystery Photo" in the subject line), or by mail (Science Scope, Mystery Photo, 1840 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22201). Those classes that correctly identify the Mystery Photo of the month will be eligible for a drawing to receive a special gift.

Only one entry per class per contest will be accepted. Please be sure to include the instructor's name, subject taught, grade level, and the name of your school along with your guess. The names of the contest winners, as well as the solution to the Mystery Photo, will be published in the following issue's column. For contest details, visit www.
