This year, the Buckman STEM Challenge the students took on topics such as sustainable biofouling control programs, biomass based corrosion inhibition, and water clarification with renewable materials and must make viable solutions for these real-world problems. These diverse challenges allow the students to explore problem solving and creativity. These are all challenges very relevant to current industrial issues the world faces. We want to congratulate the winning team from Central High School. We also want to recognize students that competed from schools: St. Mary's, Hutchison, and Collierville High School.
We have several STEM Ambassadors that work with Springdale Elementary in their STEM Classroom! We would like to thank them for the wonderful job they do for Springdale and recognize them and if you wish to learn more about them, please download their spotlight!
