Governor's STEM Competition Accepting Registrations


All commonwealth public and non-public high schools, career and technical centers, charter schools, and home-schooled students are invited to participate in the virtual 2021 Governor’s STEM Competition

The Governor’s STEM Competition requires student teams to research, design, and present a device or project that can make the quality of life better for Pennsylvanian’s. Teams must collaborate with a local member of their community or a business and industry partner to help identify a challenge faced by Pennsylvanians along with a solution to that challenge. The Governor’s STEM Competition will provide teams with:

  • an authentic experience that applies skills learned in and outside the classroom;
  • opportunities to learn new skills or refine existing skills desired for careers in STEM; and
  • an opportunity to explore career pathways.

Registration for the virtual competition is currently open for teams of five students in grades 9 – 12 and the link can be found here. A team advisor must complete the registration form for all students participating in the competition by November 19, 2021. During the 2021-22 school year, all registered teams will advance to the virtual state competition in April 2022. 

All important dates and competition information may be found on the Governor’s STEM Competition website. If you have additional questions, contact your local intermediate unit or email
