OSLN DESIGN & ENTREPRENEURSHIP CHALLENGE

Each year, the Ohio STEM Learning Network hosts a design challenge where students collaborate to create workable solutions to the key issues facing our state. Any school may participate.

As we turn towards life in a post-pandemic society, we’re inspired by the immense possibilities that lie ahead to rebuild our lives and communities to be even better than before. We can reimagine and rebuild our communities to be more equitable, more accessible, and more efficient. Who better to lead that reimagining than Ohio’s young innovators? This year’s #STEMbuildsOhio Design & Entrepreneurship Challenge invites students to consider how they can improve their school, community, or world by reimagining an existing physical space, system, product, or service so that it is more equitable, accessible, or efficient. The overall topic is infrastructure. Students have some choices about how they approach the topic.
