Go For the Gold!

                              Go for the Gold with our Winter Olympics STEM Challenge

Your team arrived in PyeongChang, South Korea, for the 2018 Winter Olympic games, but your bobsled didn’t! Now you have to build a new one in time for the bobsled race!  Use what you know about force, motion, gravity, friction, balance, and the engineering design process to build a sled that will SAFELY deliver your rider/team to the bottom of the sled run.

We will hold our Olympic Trials on Thursday, January 11th from 5:30 – 7:00, so come out and GO FOR THE GOLD!
