Details about upcoming 2018 State STEM Competition

  • This year’s State STEM Competition, presented by Raytheon, will be held in the Dallas/Fort Worth area on Saturday, April 28th 2018.

  • Students will qualify to attend the event based on performance at the Divisional STEM Competitions. (The Divisional schedule is available here as our volunteer chapter leadership work on coordinating logistics and announce dates and venues.)

  • The winning team from the Engineering Design Challenge and the top-scoring student from each grade level will automatically qualify to attend. The top-scorer for each grade will be determined by adding students’ scores in the math and science tests at the Divisional Competition. Students will be recognized for their performance in each test at the Divisional Competitions, but combined scores will be used to auto-select attendees to advance to State.

  • Students will travel to the competition on Friday, April 27th 2018 and will be hosted at a unique outdoor education camp and retreat center. 

  • Students will be assigned a single-bunk, in a climate controlled, dormitory-style cabin that sleeps 14 students. Chaperones and other adult volunteers will also be housed at the camp and will have single beds in shared rooms. Adults and students will have separate accommodations, and all dormitories have attached bathrooms and showers.

  • All event-related activities including testing and the Engineering Design Challenge will be held at the camp, which is wheelchair accessible. Entertainment, group activities, and catered meals will all be provided on-site.

  • For the first time, ALL students will stay on-site and will participate in activities on Friday night. This includes students and chaperones from the local Dallas and Fort Worth Chapters.
