2021 EPIC STEM Game

The Electric Propulsion Innovation Challenge (EPIC) is a hands-on aerospace project for kids in grades 6-12.

Each year, the game changes, but the premise remains the same- Form a team of up to three students to design, build and fly a small electric airplane that will carry out a specific task.

Airplanes are required to use a small 3-6v project motor that costs around $1, so this low-cost project is ideal for teachers and coaches who want to make an impact in STEM and explore the world of aviation and aerospace in a hands-on way.

Airplanes fly around a central tower (tethered flight) so the game is easily played indoors on any floor with a smooth surface.  First, students prove that their airplane is flight-worthy then they can play this year’s game.


Our 2021 Game- Touch N Go

In this year’s game- Touch N Go- student teams are challenged to design, build and fly an airplane that will touch down onto a designated target then immediately resume flight.  Want to learn more?  Check out our dedicated project site for this year’s game rules and more information.
