STEMpalooza Engineering Challenge

STEMpalooza dates: May 22nd and 23rd, 2018

Three Time Slots each day: 9:30-10:45 or 11:30-12:50

Location: Glazer Children's Museum

The Engineering Challenge is one of the four STEMpalooza competitions.  Each school may send 1 Engineering Challenge team, consisting of 4 students.  Those students are to be a combination of 4th and/or 5th grade students.

If students will be competing in more than one STEMpalooza event, it is the school's responsibility to schedule their event dates and times as to not overlap another competition.  Keep in mind that different events may have various start/end times and how this will affect student supervision at the venue.

Students competing in the Engineering Challenge will be given supplies and a task involving the planning, creation, and construction of a solution to the task.  Students will have a time limit to design and build their solution using the materials given.  Teams will then be scored using a given rubric.  Awards will be given based on predetermine scoring levels.
