Some impressions of last year's Goodyear STEM Student Challenge.

You and your classmates are defied to design a clever machine intentionally designed to light up a Goodyear airship and spread a meaningful message using Kniwwelino LED units in an indirect and overcomplicated fashion.(*) The principles to be applied should rely on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). The 10 best teams will be rewarded with attractive prizes!

Who can participate?

All students grades 7e to 5e (category A) and 4e to 2e (category B) can participate. Each team should be composed of min. 8, max. 10 students of the same category and high school. The team members can arise from different school classes. Every team is to be supervised by one teacher. Every high school can register more than one team.

What is expected?

After successful registration, the teams are meant to accomplish following tasks prior May 15, 2020:

  • develop and build their own themed machine;
  • write a report explaining the operation of their machine;
  • record a video showcasing the machine in action.

How will the machines be judged and rated?

Entries will be judged by a panel of representatives from Goodyear and other industry and science organizations. Points are accumulated or deducted based on

  • creativity and WOW factor of the machine;
  • various required and optional tasks to be accomplished;
  • the written report;
  • the video.

The 11 best submissions (1 from category A, 10 from category B) will be invited for the Live-Demo Day early July 2020, where final judging will occur. Winners will be announced during the closing ceremony of the Live-Demo Day, and prizes will be distributed.

You want to participate?

Registration forms can be found in your Dean’s office, or you contact us under LuxStemChallenge@goodyear.com for an electronic copy of the documents.

Important: deadline for team registration is December 13, 2019!

(*) The blimp (approx. 84 cm in length) and the Kniwwelino LED units will be provided after successful team registration.
