2021  Challenge


Over the past 6 months, we have all spent a lot of time in our home. You may have discovered that some products or appliances in your home could be safer or more environmentally friendly. Thermo Fisher Scientific is working to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer so they are asking you to rethink a product that you would find in your home, or create one that you should find in your home. This product could be (but not limited to) a new or different way to power your home, a new or updated appliance, or a new gadget for home entertainment. Be creative!


The K’Nex STEM Design Challenge State Competition will be held virtually only by submission of Design Notebook (a.k.a. Journal) and blueprint with video presentations.  A printable version of the challenge (including additional details) can be found at this link.
