Jump on the STEMXpress and learn how to create, tinker, and problem-solve! Teacher leaders, from districts in the BLaST Intermediate Unit 17 region, have come together to provide you with fun and engaging challenges to expand your thinking. Each challenge has content extensions and grade-band suggestions. The best part of it all, everything you need is at home! Visit this website every Monday in May as we release a new challenge in our STEMXpress library.

Use the STEMXpress for family fun nights or get your child(ren) off the screen and thinking.
Have your students participate in these challenges to enrich and enhance your content. OR, you could use these challenges as the foundation and access our content extensions.
Hold a STEMXpress building-level or district-wide competition!
