SHAPE American Middle School hosted this year's Middle School STEMposium from 15-17 FEB, 2017.
Students arrived and were immediately immersed in a rapidly evolving disaster scenario calling upon them to leverage their individual talents and those of their team members to develop and implement solutions to a slew of real-world problems. Students were assigned to teams with students from different schools and each team member belonged to a different STEMinar group representing engineers contending with a different facet of the disaster. Teams produced a representation of their solution and articulated that to a panel of judges. Some of these students are our engineers of tomorrow, but all employed the skills they hone at this event for the rest of their lives.
