Engineering Machine Design Contest

 

Do you have 5th - 12th grade students just itching to let their creativity flourish?!

 

Are you looking for an opportunity for your students to connect their minds with their hands?

 

If so, the Engineering Machine Design Contest March 26th 2021 is what your students need.

The Engineering Machine Design Contest is an opportunity for teams of 3-10 students to design and build a complex machine using everyday objects with the guidance of a coach. The completed machine will use multiple steps to complete a simple task. The contest theme for 2021 is Driving Change through Transportation! We look forward to seeing how this year's theme is interpreted by teams and conveyed in their machines.

 

The overall goals of this program are to:

1.      Provide a low cost or affordable option for teams to compete, 

2.      Inspire an interest in engineering and related career pathways, and 

3.      Equip students with skills that will help prepare them for future careers.
