Discovery Education and Intel Corporation have launched Curiosity in the Classroom, a partnership designed to satisfy students' curiosity and extend learning concepts found in Discovery Channel's television series CURIOSITY. Examining a variety of topics ranging from the exploration of human evolution to how the universe was created, CURIOSITY seeks to answer some of life's greatest questions.

CuriosityintheClassroom.com, an interactive, science-based educational tool, brings concepts from the CURIOSITY series to life with curriculum examining such topics as artificial intelligence, communications, computers, nanotechnology and robotics. The site provides in-class and at-home resources to encourage insightful conversation between educators, students and families.

Additional resources provided by Curiosity in the Classroom include free lesson plans and videos aligned to national education standards for students in grades 6-12; career videos and quizzes to spark students' interest in science, technology, engineering and math; webinar series exploring some of life's most captivating questions; and family discussion guides that correspond to the compelling questions examined in the CURIOSITY series.

The partnership also features "Catch Me Being Curious," a national sweepstakes awarding one family a dream vacation of exploration and discovery. One grand prize winner will receive a family vacation to experience Space Camp in Huntsville, Ala., or sightsee in Washington, D.C., the Grand Canyon National Park or Yellowstone National Park. Twenty second-place winners will receive a Discovery Education prize pack. To enter the sweepstakes, visit CuriosityintheClassroom.com.
