Announcing the STEM Contest Winners
This year’s STEM Contest was quite a success! We received many creative inventions from students in grades K–12 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 a story 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 scientist’s name, and pin it somewhere in your home to encourage their interest in STEM.
