Friday, February 24th 2017
 
Lancaster, PA – STEM Solutions at Lancaster-Lebanon Intermediate Unit 13 today announced the names of school teams and students as the winners of the 2016-17 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 2016-17 STEM Challenge involved identifying an open-ended challenge that addressed a day-to-day problem and included designing and building a prototype of an innovative product that is a solution to the selected problem. Lastly, students were also required to create a website to present the problem, possible solutions, identify “the best” solution with a prototype, and plans for further development beyond the prototype to make the solution available to others. 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.
