Carolina STEM Challenge

Across North Carolina, hundreds of middle and high school science classes have participated in the Carolina STEM Challenge, a special opportunity with the North Carolina Science Festival – and your school could be next! An online application form for the 2016 Carolina STEM ChallengeĀ is coming soon.

Science classes will be selected to receive free Carolina STEM Challenge physical science kits from Carolina Biological Supply. Using supplies from the kit, teams of two or three students will design, build and test a device. Each class selects its own champion team, which will create its own three-minute video that shows how the device works, explains why the device won the challenge and reports the challenge results.

Champion teams will upload their videos for statewide judging. Top teams will receive gift certificates from Carolina Biological Supply.
