The Challenge Lab is a self-directed experience where participants team up and use a finite number of given resources to tackle "challenges." These activities are designed to foster twenty-first century skills like team work and collaboration, innovation, creativity, and problem solving. Each project has more than one solution and allows students to creatively complete the task without adult help. It is our goal to use these hands-on activities to stimulate curiosity that may lead participants to recognize talents and interests that could lead them into a successful STEM career.
