The game is on: Pre-K to 12th grade students compete in Detroit to find solution to sustain and transport energy

22

When the next generation high-tech movers and shakers arrive, Detroit wants to make sure it is firmly in their minds.

The Midwest C-STEM Challenge and iSTEM Olympiad at Cobo Center on Saturday, April 11, 2015 should do just that. The “games” should be fun to watch. The event is open to the public and FREE to attend. It runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The team-oriented competition focuses on ways to solve 21st century problems. It will engage 1,200 students from around the Midwest who will collaboratively apply their skills in communications, science, technology, engineering and math (C-STEM) to project-based learning activities. The kids are pre-K to 12th grade, and represent 21 schools from across Michigan, Wisconsin, Maryland, and Illinois.

Robots, murals, sculptures, 3D prints, films, photographs and mobile tech innovations will be submitted as students showcase their project solutions for sustaining and transporting energy produced from wind, oil, and natural gas.

The team-oriented competition is geared toward C-STEM-inclined students and is the result of seven months of a specifically designed energy infrastructure curriculum.

By providing hands-on projects C-STEM Teacher and Student Support Services, Inc. hopes to excite a new generation of innovators and thought leaders into a future that may need them. The idea of using real world problems doesn’t hurt to galvanize them either.

Winners will receive awards, scholarships, 3D printers, computer tablets and a host of other prizes, after each project in each category has been rated by a panel of judges.

C-STEM, which has provided teachers and students with learning experiences that are engaging, fun, challenging and creative, is currently headed by Dr. Reagan Flowers, president and CEO.

A native Detroiter who struggled in school herself at a young age, Dr. Flowers recognized the impact of C-STEM education and wanted to enhance learning opportunities for students like her. Fourteen years ago, she used her personal resources to implement the nation’s first integrated STEM pre-K through 12th grade education program which has impacted more than 200,000 teachers and students around the world, many of whom have gone on to complete degree programs in STEM and are working in related industries.

“C-STEM gives students the opportunity to dream, imagine, discover, and experience learning in ways that affirms they can solve any STEM problem they set their mind to,” said Dr. Flowers. “I am firmly of the belief that everyone is an artist and an engineer and I can hardly wait to see the innovative projects students have created.”
