Deadline for submissions to ITEEA’s Elementary STEM Council Third Annual Global Design Challenge for Elementary STEM Students

December 15, 2020

Deadline for submissions to ITEEA’s Elementary STEM Council Third Annual Global Design Challenge for Elementary STEM Students

Details are available at: https://www.iteea.org/File.aspx?id=151772&v=74c644ba

In 2008, the U.S. National Academy of Engineering (NAE) identified 14 Grand Challenges for Engineering in the 21st Century. The Grand Challenges were designed to cause students and educators to think about solutions to the big challenges affecting all of our lives. It’s now time for elementary-aged students to get in on the action and show the world that they can solve big STEM design problems as well. ITEEA’s Elementary STEM Council is sponsoring the 3rd Global Design Challenge for Elementary STEM (GDC) to provide students with a chance to solve a real problem, and show the world that everyone can help find solutions to these global challenges. 

Elementary STEM students from around the world will work in small design teams to solve the GDC: Can you work as a member of a small design team to develop or modify a product or device that will encourage people to properly wash their hands for at least 20 seconds?
