TOWSON, MD—Baltimore County Public Schools students from 18 middle schools and 13 high schools will spend a Saturday morning testing their STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) knowledge by participating in the annual BCPS Physics Olympics, Chemathon, and Middle School STEM Fair.
For the Physics Olympics and Chemathon the challenges aren’t revealed until the day of the event, but in general, students work (in teams of up to 6) collaboratively to apply their science skills and creativity to solve STEM challenges in their respective disciplines (physics or chemistry).
Many of the Middle School STEM Fair challenges (for teams of up to 5 students each) will be related to engineering design. This year’s theme for all three events is Superhero Science.
The event takes place on Saturday, February 29, from 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at Dulaney High School, located at 255 Padonia Road (21093).
