2019 DC STEM Fair Winners Advance to International STEM Competition

2019 DC STEM Fair Winners Advance to International STEM Competition More than 150 District of Columbia Top STEM Students in Grades 6-12 Competed in Annual Event

(WASHINGTON, DC) – Solar panels, cryptography, and safety zippers were among the winning topics for projects at the 2019 DC STEM Fair held in Washington, DC on March 16.

The DC STEM Fair provides an opportunity for District of Columbia public, public charter, parochial, private, and homeschool students in grades 6-12 to showcase their knowledge of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) in a diverse array of projects. “The DC STEM Fair gives students across the District of Columbia the chance to demonstrate their knowledge and skill in science, technology, engineering and math and show their peers and the DC community what they are passionate about,” said State Superintendent Hanseul Kang. “Our students work incredibly hard to learn challenging concepts and ideas, and it’s exciting to see the creative ways in which they apply the knowledge and skills they’ve gained. I want to thank all the students who competed in the 2019 DC STEM Fair and all the parents, judges and volunteers who helped make the event a success. Congratulations to all the junior- and senior-level winners!”
