$500 Stem Challenge Reward at Thermo Fisher Scientific STEM challenge. The funds will be used to support STEM activities at Adams.

Here’s a challenge for you: use K'nex to develop a lift designed to lift a heavy weight above one foot in less than 60 seconds. Once lifted, it must remain suspended for five seconds. Up for the challenge? Our students at Adams Elementary accepted the challenge. For six weeks, our students worked hard and proved how pivotal teamwork is for success. One of our K’nex teams was able to participate in the competition and placed 7th. They were rewarded $500. The funds will be forwarded to our STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) program to continue funding projects and activities like these.
