NJSBA – US Army STEAM Tank Regional competition at Camp Evans
March 16, 2019 @ 8:30 am - 3:00 pmFree
STEAM Tank provides New Jersey students a platform to experience real-world problem solving. It allows them to think like entrepreneurs and design and create whatever they can dream using the fields of STEAM – science, technology, engineering, the arts and math. In STEAM Tank, students create innovative products and solutions to problems, which they enter into a competition. Winners at the regional level compete in the finals at NJSBA’s annual Workshop, before a judging panel of entrepreneurs and business leaders.

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.
