IMPORTANT UPDATE: STEM Corporate Challenge postponed - Dates TBD


As the world is facing an unprecedented event, the wellbeing of our employees and families, our financial supporters and the educational community remains our highest priority. We know that every decision we make impacts the people we love and understand that lives have already been greatly affected.  With this in mind, we have decided to postpone the STEM Corporate Challenge.

STEM Corporate Challenge 2020

A STEM Team Building Activity for Local Companies

Gather your team and get ready to tackle your opponents at the

Junior Achievement STEM Corporate Challenge

This event, based on our wildly popular 9th grade STEM Summit Program, will put your STEM skills to the test and answer the burning question...Are you smarter than a 9th grader?

As part of the STEM Corporate Challenge, your 5 person team will compete against teams from other area companies in 5 different STEM focused competitions, plus a fundraising challenge to see which team can raise the most money and earn the title of "JA Hero"!  Prizes will be awarded to the overall top scoring team, top fundraising team, and top individual fundraiser.  Top team and individual fundraisers will be determined by individual donations received through Qgiv, NOT including corporate registration fees.  We encourage all teams, whether company or individually funded, to use Qgiv, our fundraising site, to raise as much as possible. 

 In the STEM Challenge, referees will officiate each timed competition and points will be awarded based on the criteria specific to the challenge.  The STEM Challenge trophy will be awarded to the team with the highest cumulative scores.  Competitions include:

Electrical Competition

Relay Competition

Math Competition

Engineering Competition

Robotics Competition


Your company can register teams of five associates for a minimum of $500 per team. 

Registration will be completed and fundraising will be tracked on our Qgiv event site.
