STEM WARS

February 24, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

On Saturday, February 24th, 125 middle school students from Camden County will be competing in teams of four or five as they build a technology challenge, present their vision of a job of the future, participate in a STEM Trivia Challenge, and drive VEX robots around an obstacle course. Points will be earned in each area and a Grand Champion as well as second and third place overall winners will be named at the end of the competition.

There will also be awards for: Team Safety, School Spirit, Essay/Presentation, and STEM Trivia.

“February celebrates National Technical Education Month and the staff at Camden County Technical Schools wanted to create an exciting and educational day for the middle school students that we service,” said Principal Gregory Cappello. “There has been so much excitement leading up to this competition and we are looking forward to it. The build challenge is a surprise and will be announced the morning of the competition.”

Each team is comprised of four or five students from the same school. Schools with a larger student population were permitted to send additional teams. When they arrive they will be instructed in safety procedures and watch an instructional video made by the students in Video Production. They will then proceed to the build area where they will assemble their project under the watchful eyes of our award-winning robotics team and coaches, and Pre-Engineering instructors at CCTS.

Camden County Middle School teams participating include: Ann A. Mullen, Audubon Jr. High, Carusi Middle, Catholic Partnership, Dwight Eisenhower, Folsom, Gibbsboro, Glen Landing Middle, Hammonton Middle, Magnolia Public, Oaklyn Public, Our Lady of Hope, Raymond W. Kershaw, Resurrection Catholic, Rohrer Middle School, Sacred Heart, St. John Paull II, Voorhees Middle, and Woodland.
