Wolfram, the company behind Wolfram Alpha and other educational services and apps, has a great contest for educators. They are looking for educators --primary or secondary school teachers, university professors, tutors, and homeschooling parents--to tell us about the fun and exciting ways they use Wolfram|Alpha to engage students. Their favorite entries will be highlighted in a future blog post, and will win all kinds of neat prizes, like Wolfram|Alpha T-shirts or Wolfram|Alpha Spikey Paper Sculpture Kits. One lucky grand prize winner will take home an iPad, loaded with Wolfram|Alpha-powered apps, plus a year's subscription to Wolfram|Alpha Pro.
The contest is open to anyone in the world who self-identifies as an educator, but submissions close on October 15. If you're interested in learning more, please visit their blog: http://url.wolfram.com/2Fczwqm4/
