STEM Tuesday CoSTEM Contest Winners!!


CONGRATULATIONS  to the WINNERS of the First Annual  STEMTuesday COSTEM Contest!

As you will recall, each participant was asked to dress up like their favorite STEM book. We had many awesome entries. It was a tough decision, but the STEMTuesday Team decided on the following:


First Place–  Lindsay D.     

Her 8-year-old son made this costume of the Alvin with mostly recycled parts 

He was inspired by Michelle Cusolito’s Flying Deep book (Charlesbridge Publishing) 



2nd Place–  Cate, Cecilia and Vicky  4th graders at Rockenbaugh Elementary

The girls are part of Girl Scout Troop #4039, and they completed the Junior Badge “Balloon Car Design Challenge” in conjunction with their entry. They were inspired by Air Power – Rocket Science Made Simple by Pat Murphy and the Scientists of Klutz labs




3rd Place — Sarah Q. 

Her two children dressed up as a storm — lightning and rain

They were inspired by  Everything Weather by Kathy Furgang (National Geographic Kids)




What STEM-TASTIC Costumes! Well done, participants.  See, STEM books aren’t just for reading… they also ENGAGE. EXCITE and INSPIRE.

We had such fun with this contest!  So get those costumes and STEM Books ready, because the CoSTEM contest will return next year.
