STEAM League

Information and postings about the first ever ASD-N STEAM League

Posted: January 7, 2020

A few clarifications for the Winter STEAM League Challenge:

  • There are 44 possible points for the two challenges combined
  • Materials that can be used for cardboard sled: mostly cardboard, other recycled/household materials, no materials intended to be used as a sled (ex: no crazy carpets). Follow Safety Guidelines for Physical Education in NB.
  • There is a required video link in the form to show that you tested your sled. No video required to show 3m distance.
  • The form has a place to enter Snowman height and circumference. Tallest and biggest will be determined later by the STEAM leads.

As promised, our Winter STEAM League challenge
 is out!  This challenge is sponsored by Port of Belledune and ASD-N. Take a look at the flyer for the challenge guidelines and points system and get ready to enjoy all this beautiful snow.  K-5 and 6-12 have the same challenges but will submit using separate Microsoft forms (see below). Please follow the Safety Guidelines for Physical Education in New Brunswick for "Tobogganing/Sledding" guidelines.
 
 
 
The current scoreboards are also posted in the latest image gallery. Congratulations to all! For K-5, we have the IQ crew, The Legendary Creative Tornados and 5W-FIST holding the top three spots at 49, 44 and 43 respectively.  For 6-12 we have The Supreme Dream Team, Fiery Tornados and CMS Dream STEAM holding the top three positions at 48, 45 and 40 respectively.  The Winter Challenge can earn you up to 44 points so its still anyone's game!  And of course, there's $250 up for grabs to support STEAM initiatives in your school!
 
If you are a November or December winner and have not yet made arrangements for your prize, please contact Joey Savoy.

In October 2019, we launched our district’s first ever ASD-N STEAM League where students registered to compete in monthly challenges with a focus on curriculum outcomes (allowing the opportunity to work on the challenges during class time). 

 At the beginning of each month there will be a new challenge posted to STEM North and sent to all schools stating the requirements along with a point system to decide a winner.   There will be a challenge for K-5 and a separate challenge for 6-12.  At the end of each month, participating teams will be required to submit a Microsoft form that will determine the points gained.  Points will accumulate from month to month and will be posted on http://stemnorth.nbed.nb.ca/ as a scoreboard. There will be a K-5 winner and a 6-12 winner for each individual month. 

 You can register your team at any point during the year, but the more months you can participate, the quicker you will see your score climb!

 Our next goal is to see a culminating, face-to-face competition in the Spring. Stay tuned!

 

DEADLINE: Nov 27th
