STEM Summer Olympics Challenge Registration Begins
Few events in all the world rely on STEM innovations the way the Olympic games do. During the 2021-2022 school year, the STEAM Express will bring the innovations of the Tokyo Olympic games to Klein ISD.
There will be several challenges given to students to complete during the summer. Challenges will be in several categories of the various STEM fields in relation to the Summer Olympic games. We would like the students of Klein to be the ones to inspire others about the possibilities of STEM careers.
What are the challenges?
See a complete list and descriptions of each challenge from this link.
- Students will compete against those of the same school level as them.
- Students can choose to work with another student in Klein, but this is not necessary. Please limit groups to no more than three.
- Winners in each category will have their projects displayed on the STEAM Express next year for all students and community members to see. One winner will be chosen from each of the seven categories for every grade level (Elementary, Intermediate, and High School). We may take more than one winner from each grade level depending on the amount of space available.
- All challenges will be due by August 1st, 2021 by 11:59 pm that night.
- 3-D models should not exceed these dimensions (16” L X 12” W X 12” H). 3-D models can be displayed electronically if you use a program that can display something in 3-D form. (ex: Blender, CAD)
- All questions about the project can be directed to Marc Williams, the STEAM Express Coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- All projects should reflect the honor code of Klein ISD, including dress, speech, and actions.
- You can choose to represent the future or present in your project. This allows you flexibility to dream into the future, or simply represent the innovations of the present.
