STEM Student Challenge 2018
STEM puts Science Technology Engineering and Maths into real world contexts, and this is your students' opportunity to navigate and answer complex, real world questions!
This year the theme for the Australian National Science Week is Game Changers and Change Makers. You will be asked to answer a difficult STEM problem that will require you to use your creative problem solving skills!
In 2018, the STEM Student Challenge will run from 30 July to 10 August.
What kinds of questions can you expect?
STEM is all about inspiring creativity and giving student the opportunity to put into practice the knowledge and skills they learn in Science and Maths. It's a great opportunity to experience difficult, real world problems, that you could be exposed to in every day life.
