ISTI is excited to announce that the 6th Annual STEM Challenge Showcase will take place on April 26th at Google Chicago. This event is the culminating celebration of months of student-mentor collaboration and real world problem solving. Students will present their final solution to their corporate partner and an audience comprised of their mentors, representatives from ISTI’s 17 partner companies, and peers from 27 high schools across the state. After presenting, students will engage in a brief Q&A with their mentors about their solution and the research and design process. We hope to see you there!
