TECH CHALLENGE
SMART-E LOOKING FOR STUDENTS FOR TECH CHALLENGE TEAM AND PARENT VOLUNTEERS FOR 2017/2018

What is the Tech Challenge? This signature program of The Tech invites teams of students in Grades 4-12 to use the engineering design process to solve a real-world problem. Participants spend months collaborating and becoming deeply engaged in the challenge while documenting their progress and designs. The program culminates in a thrilling two-day showcase in April when teams put their solutions to the test in front of judges.

Starting Monday 1/22/18, Tech Challenge meetings will be held on Mondays 3:15-4:00 and Thursdays 3:15-4:30 in the S. Atrium. Please check the calendar above for more up to date information on meetings.
