In partnership with WNY STEM Hub and hosted by ECC South and WNYTEA at Tech Wars- MISSION: IGNITE is presenting the 3rd Annual WNY Brain Challenge. An engineering competition open to all middle school and high school students throughout the region. Student teams design and build a Rube Goldberg contraption with the final task to Zip a Zipper. Working with a supervising teacher and a corporate mentor, students practice problem solving skills, think creatively, and apply engineering principles to the project. Judges score the students based on a detailed scoring rubric. Winning teams receive laptops!
Still seeking mentors, corporate sponsors, and judges!
