STEM Studio Olympiad

STEM Studio Olympiad

Saturday, May 4 9am-3pm
Main Stage in Ramona

Teams of 4 will compete against each to answer STEM-based trivia questions. Single elimination rounds will determine the ultimate winner—the team with the highest score will move on in each round. Teams will be given 30 seconds to collaborate before providing their final answer to questions presented by a moderator. Teams may also be asked to do a 3-minute STEM challenge as another way to earn points.

Component 1: STEM Trivia ($100 for team of 4)

Teams of 2-4 will be given a set of materials and instructions to design and engineer a project. Teams will have 50-minutes to create their project, and will be judged on its structural integrity, creativity, explanation of design and structure components, functionality, and engineering detail.

Component 2: STEM Building contest ($25 per team member, 2- 4 members per team)

Individuals will submit a fictional essay about a character who solved a problem using engineering, science, technology, or math. Essays will be judged on their technical detail, creativity, problem solving, and real-life applications. Characters cannot use magical or super powers, they must use STEM-based skills and resources. Essays may include up to 2 illustrations but are not required. Essay may be up to 800 words in length

Component 3: STEM Essay Contest ($25 per entry)
