Today, it’s more important than ever that youth are engaged with and interested in STEM. InventSTEM is an Iowa 4-H Program in partnership with Alliant Energy for youth in grades 4-12 that encourages youth to engage in the innovation process to solve real-world problems.
New this year – InventSTEM will be releasing a monthly design challenge! Challenges are released on the first of each month. For an overview of the 2020-2021 topics, please download the InventSTEM Topic Overview.
Each challenge is designed to connect to the lives of youth, engage with their ideas and respond to their questions. In addition, challenges are aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards and a variety of STEM professions.
