• IU 13 Elementary STEM Bowl 


    The Annual Lancaster-Lebanon Elementary STEM Bowl is designed to showcase and apply 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students’ knowledge of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The event will consist of two components:

    1. A Quiz Bowl style competition comprised of six 20-minute matches in which each team of four students will compete against another team to answer a series of toss-up questions and bonus questions, and

    2. Hands-on design and problem-solving activities presented by the IU13 STEM Team.


    The 5th graders represented Bear Creek in the Lancaster-Lebanon STEM Bowl that included 20 teams.  Mrs. Shenk, Gifted Teacher, helped the students prepare for the STEM Bowl by holding multiple practicing with the students preparing them for the STEM Bowl. 

    The four 5th grade students were on the Quizzly Bears team.  They participated in 2 STEM activities and 6 quiz-bowl style contests.  The two teams with the highest number of points participated in a final match at the close of the event.  We went head-to-head in front of everyone against another school...a team we had lost to earlier in the day.  WE WON!!!!
