Announcing the 2019 Nevada K-12 STEM Challenge!

About the Challenge: The Nevada K-12 STEM Challenge is about engaging students and teachers to use STEM concepts to solve some of Nevada’s biggest challenges. Desert Research Institute (DRI) is partnering with the STEM Advisory Council for this year’s challenge. In honor of DRI’s 60th anniversary of improving Nevada’s communities, every student, group of students, or classroom in Nevada is invited to research and design solutions to Nevada’s environmental challenges. We look forward to seeing how Nevada’s students use STEM concepts and innovative technology at two regional student recognition events taking place in May 2019. Teachers and students will also have the opportunity to speak with DRI scientists and visit DRI science labs at the recognition events!
