STEAM Tank Schedule Set for Workshop 2017

The STEAM TANK Challenge, created and sponsored by NJSBA and the U.S. Army, encourages students in the areas of STEAM – science, technology, engineering, the arts and math. Teams create innovative projects, and present their inventions to a judging panel of entrepreneurs, business leaders and inventors. More than 190 teams of K-8 and high school students have submitted applications to participate this year. In the spring, 37 regional winners were selected from the 90 school district teams that were chosen to present at the regional competitions. The regional winners will present their inventions to a panel of judges on Oct. 24 and Oct. 25 at Workshop 2017. Two statewide winners will be selected: one each from the grades K-8 and the grades 9-12 categories.

The STEAM TANK Challenge will take place in the I-STEAM Command Center on the Exhibit Floor.

Participating schools will present their STEAM TANK initiatives during the following days and times:
