Nevada K-12 STEM Challenge

"There is no issue more important to me than making sure every child in every classroom gets a great education… We are also working to ensure that we give our students the skill sets require to succeed in [Nevada] industries, with STEM education begin more important than ever before."– Governor Steve Sisolak, State of the State Address, January 16, 2019  

2020-2021 Nevada K-12 STEM Challenge!  

About the Challenge: The Nevada K-12 STEM Challenge is about engaging students and teachers to use STEM concepts to solve Nevada’s biggest challenges. This year we invite all of Nevada's students to showcase their STEM projects online. We encourage students to post their projects on social media with #NVSTEMChallenge and tag us @sciNVtech. Alternatively, you can e-mail your projects to and we will continually update this page with your projects! We know that students across Nevada solve real-world problems year-round and so the challenge is ongoing through the end of the school year.

Recognition Event Details: Due to travel and gathering restrictions, there will not be a recognition event this year. Instead, we look forward to highlighting your projects online throughout the year! We will recognize your participation on this page; be sure to e-mail us at with your information, including:

  • Student name(s)
