What is EPIC?

 
 
 

Experimenting, Prototyping, Inventing and Creating

Project-based learning, real-world relevance
Participating kids research, create and present an invention or idea that would improve life for kids like those at St. Jude.

Meets modern standards 
Designed by educators, St. Jude EPIC Challenge meets Next Generation Science Standards. 

Flexible and adaptable
St. Jude EPIC Challenge follows a flexible five-lesson format that can be implemented in the classroom or from home.

2) Encourage your students to be creative
After you register, we'll send you a toolkit with everything you need to guide kids through the research and design process as they bring their inventions to life.

3) Help your students give back
Students can share their inventions with family and friends and seek "funding" for their idea by asking for donations to support the kids of St. Jude.

4) Celebrate what your kids have accomplished 
We'll be awarding prizes for the top innovations and top fundraisers. In addition, kids can earn EPIC prizes and experience for every dollar raised, all while ensuring families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.
