IU13 Announces Winners of 6th Annual STEM Competition

02/22/2019 By Curt Funkhouser

The STEM program at IU13 has announced the names of the students winners of the 2018-19 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. The 2018-19 STEM Competition required students to identify and create a STEM solution for the students' community. The solution could be an issue affecting their neighborhood, housing development, municipality, township, etc. For example, it could address an issue with infrastructure. The solution could not be as simple as adding a lane to increase traffic or secure faster internet.

The top entries were selected in the grade-level divisions: 4th-6th and 7th-9th.  Each winning student received a gift card valued at $100 for 1st place, $50 for 2nd place, and $25 for 3rd place. Students also received a certificate of recognition.

The goal of the IU13 STEM Consortium is to raise awareness of the importance of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through this consortium activity.
