Governor's STEM Challenge

The Governor's STEM Competition

This year’s theme for the competition is “Improving Pennsylvania Through STEM.” The state competition will be held in May 2019. Teams of high school students from across the state will be challenged to research, present, and design a device or project that can make the quality of life better for citizens of Pennsylvania. The device will accomplish a series of practical tasks that can be translated into real life needs. High school teams will be provided with a $500 stipend to design and build a prototype of their device.
