The other competition is the High School STEMentorship Exhibitor Competition where we will have an exhibit and at the same time we will present a hands on activity to inspire our community middle school students to pursue a STEM+Arts endorsement when they arrive to high school.  There will be ten high school with exhibits and the middle school students will choose who the best exhibit is!!!  If you scroll down there are some photos of this exhibit.
