STEMFest at The Works
Middle and high school students — STEMfest! is for you. Gather a team, or work individually, to solve a real-world STEM problem developed by area businesses. Winners receive awards as well as potential scholarships and internships. You’ll choose from one of three Problem Solving Challenges and present your solution to a panel of judges during our STEMfest! competition.
