Why a Video Contest about STEM?

The purpose of this contest is to show what it is really like use math and science on the job. Many people don’t realize how many great careers use math and science – they’re called STEM occupations, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. And these occupations can be found in almost every industry – healthcare, manufacturing, information technology, renewable energy, and much more. Using math and science on the job can be very different from using it in the classroom – your job is to make a video that shows how!

High school students from Antrim, Benzie, Charlevoix, Emmet, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Manistee, Missaukee, and Wexford counties were invited to participate.
