NJSBA – US Army STEAM Tank Regional Competion

March 22, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pm

Free

STEAM Tank consists of three regional challenges for three grade levels, elementary, middle and high school. Selected teams pitch their ideas to the judges in the designated regional locations, and winners of the regional competitions will advance to compete at the STEAM Tank finals during NJSBA’s annual Workshop Conference held at the Atlantic City Convention Center on Oct. 22 and 23, 2019.

The northern region includes Sussex, Passaic, Bergen, Warren, Morris, Essex, and Hudson counties; the central region includes Hunterdon, Somerset, Union, Mercer, Middlesex, Monmouth and Ocean counties; and the southern region includes Burlington, Camden, Gloucester, Atlantic, Salem, Cumberland, and Cape May counties.

The competition asks the district teams to invent something new, modify an existing product, or identify a situation or real world problem that needs resolution. Teams are provided criteria and a panel of experts judge their designs and/or solutions.

Teams presenting must consist of at least two, but no more than five, students and at least one educator. Each team is allowed to present only one idea. Once a team has its idea registered and is accepted into the STEAM Tank regional competition, the team educator can request access to the STEAM Tank playbook that includes an FAQ sheet and rubric. The final judging of the STEAM Tank Challenge submissions will take place at the NJSBA/NJASA/NJASBO Workshop on Oct. 22 and 23, 2019. The award ceremony will take place at the New Jersey Education Association’s Convention in November 2019.
