How to participate:

Scientific Notebook is available in the MCS Computer Lab.

Entries will be evaluated by an expert panel of judges to determine the best solution.  Each month’s winner will receive a reward and a certificate of recognition signed by the ASU Problem Coordinator and the Editor of the national “Problem Solving Challenge”. Only one reward per person per academic year.
