STEM Challenges

STEM Challenges are real-world projects that create opportunities for high school students to work alongside STEM professionals as mentors. Students and mentors from STEM Challenge industry partners collaborate over the course of six months to explore, create, and build innovative solutions.

Most students might not associate science with fun, but this program lets us personalize our projects, collect data, and draw our own conclusions.
