2017 – 2018 STEM Challenge
Discovery Park of America is proud to partner with the Northwest Tennessee STEM Innovation Hub to present a STEM Challenge!
STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. STEM Education is about much more than the interconnected disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, though. STEM Education is way to prepare students for a future in the workforce. To succeed in this STEM Challenge, students will need to work as part of a team with a variety of people, across a variety of disciplines, exactly as they will need to do in the real world!
The Discovery Park Staff includes exhibit designers and fabricators, artists, subject matter experts, maintenance workers, IT professionals, educators, marketing professionals, event planners, accountants, administrators, and more. Without everyone working together as a team, Discovery Park could not have been built and could not operate from day to day!
Participation in the challenge is limited to one team per school or school district. Scout troops, youth groups, and other organizations may enter as a team. Registration is open to schools and organizations located in all of West Tennessee and Southwest Kentucky (Ballard, Calloway, Carlisle, Fulton, Graves, Hickman, Marshall & McCracken Counties).
