This fall, students will be tackling real-world problem connected to the largest STEM challenge of our time: COVID-19, through the STEM Week Challenge.

Spend a few hours during the judging period (Oct 26-Nov 6) providing written feedback to students about their submitted work and helping select the top projects.

Our research shows that receiving expert feedback from an authentic audience of industry professionals is hugely motivating to students and impactful as they picture themselves as future STEM professionals. Judging is done totally on your schedule, all through the online portal.

Challenges Overview:

  • Grades 9-12: students apply lessons of virus spread, mitigation techniques and design thinking to develop an app to help their community slow the spread of COVID
  • Grades 6-8: students apply learnings about the anatomy and physiology of the nervous system and the engineering design process to design an adaptation to an everyday task for persons with paralysis
  • Grades K-5: students develop a viral game that not only employs fundamental math skills but also overcomes some of the isolation we’ve been facing due to COVID
