Local Student Winners Announced in STEM Challenge

03/18/2015

Lancaster, PA: Twenty-two students from Elizabethtown Area, Manheim Central, Manheim Township, and Warwick School Districts were crowned winners of the 2nd annual STEM Competition held at IU13. 

The competition is part of the IU13 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) Consortium.

 

The challenge is for students in Grades 4-12 from schools that are members of the IU13 STEM Consortium. It 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 challenge for this year’s competition involved: identifying a real-world problem, designing a solution for the problem, and creating a prototype and materials to market the product. Winners were selected in grades 4-6th, and 7-9th. (No entries were completed in the 10-12th grades.) Each winner received a gift card and certificate of recognition.

 

Congratulations to the 2014-2015 STEM Challenge Winners:
