Each spring Saint Andrew's fields a team to participate in The Tech Museum's annual design competition, The Tech Challenge. The team(s) can include students in grades 5-12. It introduces and reinforces the science and engineering design process with a hands-on project geared to solving a real-world problem.
Designed to inspire the next generation of Silicon Valley innovators, The Tech Challenge provides months of team learning in science, engineering, and math, culminating in Event Day
in April. Team efforts are celebrated in an awards ceremony, recognizing everything from Best Overall Solution to Most Spectacular Failure.
The Tech Challenge meets California Content Standards and reinforces 21st century skills of creativity, problem solving, design, teamwork, leadership, presentation, risk-taking, perseverance, and learning from failure.
