In order to help students who have been contending with state testing as well as getting ready for spring break, Los Alamos National Laboratory officials are extending the registration deadline to April 12 for the Los Alamos STEM Challenge.
It’s a contest meant to highlight LANL’s 70th birthday, as well as what students know about science, technology, engineering and math.
According to the STEM Challenge website, stemarts.com, the contest is only open to students in grades six through 12 or home school equivalent.
LANL officials prefer that teachers register the students as a team, but home school students are also welcome to join.
After students register, the next step is to write an essay, create a video, design a poster or design an app and turn it in by April 30, according to Janelle Vigil-Maestas, an education specialist with LANL’s Community Programs division.
The four categories must reflect these STEM categories: biology, chemistry, computer science, Earth science, environmental science, physics robotics or space technology.
LANL employees will judge the designs for creativity and ingenuity. While the designs don’t have to necessarily work, they should be feasible enough to.
