IU13 STEM CONSORTIUM STUDENT COMPETITION-Winners of Fifth Annual Challenge

02/23/2018 By IU13

Lancaster, PA – STEM Solutions at Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13 today announced the names of school teams and students as the winners of the 2017-19 IU13 STEM Student Competition. The contest, for students in grades 4-9 from schools that are members of the IU13 STEM Consortium, aims to increase STEM-related educational opportunities for students within the region. In addition, the IU13 STEM Consortium intends to raise awareness of the importance of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through this consortium activity. The 2017-18 STEM Challenge involved identifying and creating a STEM Solution personalized to support accommodations for students or adults with disabilities. The design brief stressed the solution should not be as simple as 3D printing an appendage (arm, finger, etc.). The solution needed to be beyond those of prosthetics for people with physical disabilities, and included consideration of supports for those with emotional, intellectual, sensory, speech-language, autism or learning disabilities. The top entries were selected in the grade level divisions – 4th-6th and 7th-9th. Each winning student receives a gift card valued at $100 for 1st place, $50 for 2nd place, and $25 for 3rd place. All participants receive a certificate of recognition.
