The  National Science Foundation 2026 Idea Machine is a contest through which NSF seeks input on grand challenges or questions (i.e., Big Ideas) to inform its long-term planning. The contest invites the public and the scientific community to participate by submitting ideas and by commenting on other contestants’ ideas. The entries will be judged by STEM and STEM education research experts at multiple stages of the contest. In the end, NSF will award cash and other prizes for the best entries.

Participants can earn prizes and receive public recognition by suggesting the pressing research questions that need to be answered in the coming decade, the next set of “Big Ideas” for future investment by the National Science Foundation (NSF). It's an opportunity for researchers, the public and other interested stakeholders to contribute to NSF's mission to support basic research and enable new discoveries that drive the U.S. economy, enhance national security and advance knowledge to sustain the country's global leadership in science and engineering.
