Team requirements: Teams attending the Elkader session may consist of a maximum of 6 students (3 girls and 3 boys) and 1 teacher per building. Teams attending the Dubuque session may consist of 10-12  students (5/6 girls and 5/6 boys) and 1 or 2 teachers per building. Registration is limited. TIP: Consider bringing students who are good leaders so they can share the learning with others at their school.

General Overview
Students will collaborate with partners in a series of makerspace STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) challenges for Middle School.  Students and teachers will learn and do all new STEAM activities in a makerspace like environment. Activities are adaptable to take back to school. The morning will be all hands-on sessions. The afternoon will again include some guidance and planning time for creating or adding a STEAM makerspace or STEAM event back at your school. Many resources will be shared.
