Tyrone Area High School’s Agricultural Education Program is offering after school STEM AG challenges for any student enrolled in grades five through eight. The first challenge will be held on Tuesday, Jan. 21.

The first challenge will be catapults. Teams consisting of two to four members will work together to design catapults based on the supplies provided. The teams will have to complete their catapults within the allotted time frame. The first challenge will be at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 21, in the AG Room in the CTE wing. Students will likely finish at about 4 p.m., and they must be picked up no later than 4:20 p.m.

The second challenge will be to build a Rube Goldberg Machine, and it will take place on Tuesday, Jan. 28.

All challenges are free to participate, and they are a great way to have fun during the colder months of January, February and March. There is no need to attend all challenges.

Anyone who is interested in participating is welcome stop by the office at Tyrone Area Middle School or the Ag room door and pick up a permission slip. Students may not attend STEM AG challenges without a permission slip.
