STEM Challenge Winners Announced

By Dr. Rose Davidson, STEM Coordinator
Congratulations to Jazzy Saliba ’22, Natalie Murray ’20, Marissa Ledbetter ’19 and Maggie Hannick ’19 for winning the October SJA STEM Challenge.
Students were challenged to craft an entry into the Creative Writing and Visual Arts Contest, held by the Mutant Millets Team at the Danforth Plant Science Center, and submit it to a team of faculty members for feedback before entering it into the Danforth Competition.

Thank you to the faculty judges on the review team, which was comprised of Mrs. Boul, Mrs. Carpenter, Mr. Cummings, Dr. Davidson, Ms. Ferrell, Mrs. Haddock, Ms. Kelly, Mrs. Pottgen, and Mrs. Schaefer.
 
All entries have received feedback and submitted their projects to the Danforth Competition, which ended on November 30. We wait in anticipation for the announcement of the winners.
 
The next STEM Challenge will take place over the months of November and December with entries due on January 3, 2019. Students are challenged to craft an entry for the EngineerGirl Writing Contest, sponsored by the National Academy of Engineering. Students will write a fictional story about a female engineer who designs a solution to one of the world’s problems. SJA students who enter this STEM challenge will receive feedback on their story in time to revise it before entering the EngineerGirl Contest, which has a deadline of February 1.

Details on the competition can be found here.
