To enter-review the information below and complete the application by December 9th.
The STEAM Tank Challenge, created by the New Jersey School Boards Association, encourages education in STEAM – science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math – for New Jersey’s public-school students. The STEAM Tank Challenge is an opportunity for students to reimagine and redesign New Jersey to ensure our state is sustainable, healthy, equitable and a safe place for everyone to live, work and play.
STEAM Tank is open-ended to maximize student creativity. It helps students develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will serve them in their future careers and everyday lives. The competition asks district teams to invent something new, modify an existing product, or identify a situation or real-world problem that needs resolution. The challenge includes an emphasis on sustainability and climate change.
