This year’s EPIC STEM Challenge game is here! If you haven’t done this hands-on STEM project with your kids, you should! Each year, our kids and coaches vote on what kind of game they want to play. This year, they voted to plan a precision game.
But, before I introduce this year’s game, let me step back and share a bit about EPIC if you’re unfamiliar…
EPIC is the Electric Propulsion Innovation Challenge. It is designed for kids in grades 6-12 and it challenges them to design, build and fly a small electric airplane that will carry out a specific task. It sounds really intimidating, but it’s not! It’s super fun! It’s a great opportunity for kids to explore a potential interest in the aerospace field and develop/refine their critical thinking skills.
Each year, we play a different game. Our 2023 game is Precision Pursuit! In this game, teams are challenged to design, build and fly a small electric airplane that can be navigated through flight gates of different heights and sizes.
