Minnesota Moment: 5th graders compete in STEM challenge

April 09, 2019 10:54 PM

A group of young girls from a Plymouth elementary school hopes to impress the judges in a global competition. 

Four Sunset Hill fifth-graders have been competing in a STEM challenge showcasing their science, technology, engineering and math skills.


They have already placed second in the state and regional competitions with their engineering project. They achieved that by designing structures and the lightest materials possible to hold the most weight.

The team heads to Destination Imagination's global finals in Kansas City next month. They will be joining 1,400 teams in the competition. 

The team has also set up a GoFundMe, which can be found here.
