What is the LEAF STEM Challenge?


LEAF is the Lindbergh Electric Aircraft Flight STEM Challenge and we call it LEAF for short.

LEAF is an engineering design challenge for students in grades 6-12.  It challenges them to work with a team of up to 3 kids to design, build and fly a small electric airplane.

Each year we play a different game to help kids dial in their STEM skills…and sometimes we modify the rules too depending on the game we’re playing.

We offer a coaches workshop for any adult who would like to learn more.  During this workshop, each participant designs, builds, and flies their own airplane.  We walk you through all the steps so that you can see the project through the eyes of a student.

After you’ve had time to teach the project to your students, we invite you and your student teams to participate in our annual fly-off to see which teams can play the game the best!
