The more you interact with Fun2Discover, the more POINTS you earn!

Fun2Discover encourages our users to get involved with Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics through a unique, incentive-based points system and contests.

Every STEAM-based activity on Fun2Discover can earn our members points, earn enough points and you could win great STEAM prizes.

 


Membership is FREE!

Everyone is welcome to visit the Fun2Discover website but, if you want to get involved in the community and participate in any of our contests you must have your parent or legal guardian sign up and register you.

You can answer our Challenge Question of the Day Contest, you can submit your own STEAM based project or collaborate with kids who already have projects in the community.  There are games, videos, tutorials, interactive projects and contests all geared towards STEAM and all earning you points towards our awesome prizes.

Fun2Discover is an online STEAM based community forum composed of Fun2Discover members who discuss and post STEAM based projects, ideas and topics. The more you post, share and interact the more points you earn!

User registration is required for two reasons:

1) User registration is required to record and track your earned Fun2Discover points so that you can be eligible to win our great STEAM prizes.

2) We have very strict security protocols in place to protect our student and child users. The registration and content posting verification processes are required for these security protocols. The user must be logged in to post content to the community. All content that is posted to the STEAM community is audited and approved by our staff and, in some cases, also by the parent or teacher of the student user.

Note: We do not sell or share your user registration information or personal site usage information with anyone. Your user registration is only required for points and contest usage recording and our site security protocols.
Everything you do on Fun2Discover; from signing-up, watching a video, rating a STEAM based product or project, to submitting pictures of your own STEAM- based projects, will earn you points. All activity is tracked and points awarded.

Below are the point values you can earn on Fun2Discover.com to win great STEAM prizes!

Some point values are daily (such as logging into your account), some points value are one-time (such as following us on Facebook) and other points values are resource-specific where the points are per resource (such as viewing a user's post, watching an individual video, etc).

Resource-specific point values can be earned for all individual STEAM resources on the site (or app) but you can only earn the point value once per specific resource. (example: you can earn points for each community user's post you read/view but cannot earn points for viewing the same post twice).
