    The Exploravision challenge is a national competition where each team (2-4 people) has to write an abstract, an eleven page paper, create a bibliography and draw five sample web pages.  Each team has to chose something they want to improve.  The paper discusses the topic the team chose and is split into seven parts.  Present technology, history, future technology, breakthroughs, design process, consequences. The bibliography is not apart of the eleven-page paper.  The present technology describes what has happened recently with the topic the team has chosen.  It should describe the most recent advances with their topic, and also the most commonly heard of way to use the team’s topic.  The history portion of the paper describes the history of the topic the team chose, and should also include important dates in history for that topic.  The future technology portion of the paper should describe the team’s idea of what their topic will be like in twenty years (2038).  The future technology should also go into as much detail as the competitor can about how the future technology would work.  The breakthroughs portion of the paper should describe extremely important events that need to take place now or sometime in the future in order for the technology the team describes to become a reality.  The design process portion of the paper should describe the rejected ideas they had for their topic and why they rejected those ideas.   The consequences portion of the paper should describe the good and bad consequences of their future technology.  The bibliography should include every source the team used when writing their paper.  The five sample web pages should be similar to an advertisement and describe what their project would do and how it would work then cite any sources they used for the web pages that they did not use for their paper.  The aThe Exploravision challenge is a national competition where each team (2-4 people) has to write an abstract, an eleven page paper, create a bibliography and draw five sample web pages.  Each team has to chose something they want to improve.  The paper discusses the topic the team chose and is split into seven parts.  Present technology, history, future technology, breakthroughs, design process, consequences.
