Abstract Details (PID = P128)
Title:A STEM Experience: Model Water Tower Competition (P128)
Description:Listen to an Instructional Coach and Director of Public Works describe an exciting STEM experience. This competition provides a fun-filled, science oriented competition aimed at introducing middle school students to opportunities in the water profession. The competition requires students to design and build a working water tower with specific size and height requirements. The models are judged based on 5 categories including: cost efficiency, hydraulic efficiency, structural efficiency, design ingenuity, and interview presentation. The competition requires little of the classroom teacher's time, but success of the student is directly dependent on the student having the opportunity and encouragement to enter. Some options include (but are not limited to): an after school club, STEM Club, STEM class, or a classroom learning experience. This year's competition will be held at Westmont Junior High in Westmont, IL on Saturday, February 23, 2019.
