Co-created by the NJSBA and the U.S. Army, STEAM Tank is modeled after the popular television show “Shark Tank.” The STEAM Tank Challenge asks students to invent something new, modify an existing product, or identify a situation or real world problem that needs resolution. STEAM emphasizes the integration of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics, but the competition is not limited to those content areas.
This year’s STEAM Tank Challenge had over 400 submissions. Ninety have advanced to compete in the final challenge held in Atlantic City at the NJSBA/NJASA/NJASBO annual Workshop on Oct. 23-24.
A handful of student teams who participate in the final competition will be invited to showcase their innovative ideas, prototypes, and solutions at NJEA Convention.
The winners will be announced at the NJEA Convention in the STEAM Tank Theater on Nov. 8.
Be sure to visit the STEAM Tank Theater and see the ingenuity of our student entrepreneurs.
