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. In the 2019 challenge, Desert Research Institute (DRI) partnered with the STEM Advisory Council. In honor of DRI’s 60th anniversary of improving Nevada’s communities, every student, group of students, or classroom in Nevada was invited to research and design solutions to Nevada’s environmental challenges. It was great to see how Nevada’s students used STEM concepts and innovative technology at two regional student recognition events that took place in May 2019. Teachers and students also had the opportunity to speak with DRI scientists and visit DRI science labs at the recognition events!  Stay tuned for 2020 K-12 STEM Challenge!
