DESCRIPTION:

By Sandra Wheatley

As we settle into spring, I’m anticipating an exciting annual event — The Tech Challenge at The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, California.  This is an amazing program that brings together thousands of students and gives them a chance to flex their engineering muscles.

In its 26th year, The Tech Challenge continues the mission to promote science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education with the “Asteroids Rock!” project. In this year’s scenario, an unmanned spacecraft launched from Earth and landed on an asteroid. From there, it must transport 3 packages of delicate testing instruments to specified locations. The students must tackle this challenge with creativity and ingenuity.

Read more about The Tech Challenge's goal for inspiring the next generation of Silicon Valley innovators.
