Is your kid a math whiz, the next Van Gogh, an inventor or just a genius in all subjects? Then this new program is for them! So You Think You Can STEAM sponsored by Big Red Keno, is a talent competition that judges kids on their creativity, ingenuity and knowledge in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and/or Math. This program will narrow down to award one lucky winner a scholarship to be used towards their field of study, along with other exciting prizes and perks, over the period of four months. First, every child who wants to participate will fill out an application found on our website. Applications will be due May 1st and the top twenty will be chosen to present their projects at the Museum on May 13th from 10 am – 12 pm.
Judges will review the projects and choose the top 10 at the end of the event. Those top 10 will then be paired with mentors in their fields and also provided $200 to use towards expanding or enhancing their projects. Saturdays in July the top 10 will present their improved projects at the Museum to judges and audience members and those presentations will narrow down to the top 3. The top 3 will present at the Museum on August 5 and a winner will be chosen. We want to highlight the talent of children in Lincoln and this program will be the perfect chance to do just that. The program is open to children in 4th grade through 12th grade.
