An After School Experience Designed to Teach Kids How to Solve Problems and Develop Products That Change the World.
LIVE STREAM JUNE 5, 2021
The Goethe STEAM Team is hosting a science challenge for student engineers grades K-8. Students who take on the DisEase Challenge will construct a prototype and demonstrate its application to answer the question, “How do we solve the DisEase of COVID-19 on our community?”. Starting Friday April 9, 2021, virtual labs and workshops were be hosted to give students the information and guidance to create a product prototype that addresses DisEase.
The Design DisEase Challenge Showcase, will be held Saturday June 5, 2021. Over 30 student engineers will present their prototype ideas to a panel of judges made up of professionals from our partners James Dyson Foundation, Museum of Science & Industry, MHub, & University of Wisconsin. These professionals shared key insights on prototyping, airflow, disease transmission, and manufacturing to inspire our kids thinking and expose them to real world opportunities in science.
Students will be presenting their prototypes from the Goethe Auditorium. The presentations will be live streamed and available for all ticket holders. Tickets are complimentary. If you have the means to donate, you will have the option to do so. Your donations will go to Friends of Goethe School non-profit organization, responsible for raising funds to support Goethe programs that impact our students.
