How to submit a guess

When an image is published, teachers can submit a guess on behalf of their class through our website, by email at (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 an item of their choice from NSTA's Science Store.
