5-STAR Challenge

 CIE-SoCal promotes STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics) excellence by hosting an annual STEM 5-STAR Challenge focused on presentation and communication skills. The presentation material shall represent a body of STEM work accomplished, by an individual or team, that might be integrated with school supported studies.  The final STEM 5-STAR Challenge will consist of a 10-minute presentation followed by Q/A.


This year's presenters all did a wonderful job. But our judges really made the event a success by offering excellent critiques/recommendations to the presenters!
