Promote Interest in STEM Education: The Lowcountry Perspective
A case study involves an annual Trebuchet competition called ‘Storm The Citadel!’ through a partnership between Google and the Citadel to promote interest in STEM education in the Lowcountry of SC. Participants range from kindergarteners to seasoned professionals. Over 86% of the participants surveyed overwhelmingly agreed that the competition helped them learn more about STEM and problem solving. The competition also helped them learn how to function as a team and to communicate ideas.
