This is an entry level STEM competition for students in grades Kindergarten – 4. The purpose of this program is to prepare and inspire younger elementary students for science competitions later on in their academic careers.
The premise of this competition is challenge-based with a team focus. Unlike middle and high school competitions, this program will seek to prepare students through pre-activities and prompts that occur during the school day and then culminates in a daylong event at the Orlando Science Center where students will put their skills into practice via a competition. Teachers are given seven pre-activities in which you choose five to complete before the challenge in February.
