CALGARY - Emerson Canada today announced the winners of its second annual virtual STEM competition, designed to foster creativity and ingenuity in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) for children.
With the theme 'Build Back Better,' this year's participants were encouraged to imagine and create a better post-pandemic world with the goals of advancing clean energy, improving the food supply and strengthening society.
'The presentations were outstanding. We were honoured to have so many mentors encourage the students as well as highly respected judges from science and technology organizations select the winners,' said Ryan Garrah, president of Emerson Canada. 'With a focus on building a better post-pandemic world, the competition proved that the future is bright when you see the critical thinking, imagination and enthusiasm of all the students.'
The competition took place over several weeks and featured submissions from nearly 50 applicants, ranging from six to 16 years of age. More than 22 mentors from five Canadian universities and colleges helped the students think about and refine their ideas and presentations. Submissions were reviewed by the judges, with the top five finalists from each category selected to present their project via live video.
