Your team needs to consist of 8 to 10 students from grades 3-5 or grades 6-8. Pick wisely! teams can only be a mix of different grades within the grade division. Team leader should be a teacher, instructor or parent. If you are a STEM teacher, a librarian or a parent, this is a great opportunity for you to get your kids involved. *The competition is only available for teams in the United States and Canada.
