See the Winners of the K12 ‘Make a Splash’ STEM Contest

This year’s Make a Splash STEM Contest was fun and educational for students. We received many creative Rube Goldberg inspired inventions from students in kindergarten through 11th grade displaying their scientific abilities. We invite you to view our online collection of participants and see the fantastic submissions we received this year.

If you submitted an entry for your student, you should have received a participant certificate. If you missed it, you can download your certificate of participation, print it, personalize it by filling in your student’s name, and display it in your home to encourage their interest in STEM.

The winners have been chosen, and we would like to congratulate the following students:
