This year’s SD 85 S.T.E.M. challenge for our 200 students was for each team to create 2 tools to assess the general health, biodiversity and stock assessment for the Quatse River Estuary. Each team was given a package consisting of red solo cups, paint sticks, rope, tape, elastics, etc. Out of the 39 teams who attended (1 from Gold River!) three teams came out on top:
Top Design: Fort Rupert Elementary School
Most Innovative Design: Seaview Elementary School
Top Overall Winner: A. J. Elliott Elementary School
The iPad was won by Sydney from Gwa’sala-‘Nakwaxda’xw School, and the Bose speaker was won by Kieran from Fort Rupert Elementary.
We want to thank our sponsors and donors for their contributions to make this such a success, and to the industry professional judges who took time out of their busy day to support and choose our winners.
