    Hi,
    I want my students to take the STEM Challenge but I missed the workshop on November 17th. I was wondering if someone can share some information (especially topics for the project) that will help get my students started on this project.

    Thank you,
    Maureen

    I started my 35 seventh grade students on their projects last week and things are moving slowly. most have at least one idea and have started developing rules and ideas for programming. Some have started story boarding and some have just jumped into drawing the background and players on the computer.
