2022 Governor's STEM Competition

All commonwealth public and non-public high schools, career and technical centers, charter schools, and home-schooled students are invited to participate in the virtual 2021 Governor’s STEM Competition


The Governor’s STEM Competition requires student teams to research, design, and present a device or project that can make the quality of life better for Pennsylvanian’s. Teams must collaborate with a local member of their community or a business and industry partner to help identify a challenge faced by Pennsylvanians along with a solution to that challenge. The Governor’s STEM Competition will provide teams with: 

  • an authentic experience that applies skills learned in and outside the classroom; 
  • opportunities to learn new skills or refine existing skills desired for careers in STEM; and
  • an opportunity to explore career pathways. 


Registration for the virtual competition is currently open for teams of five students in grades 9 – 12 and the link can be found here. A team advisor must complete the registration form for all students participating in the competition by November 19, 2021. During the 2021-22 school year, all registered teams will advance to the virtual state competition in April 2022.

TEEAP/NJTEEA Collaboration

As a response to the COVID-19 virus, school districts are throughout the country are exploring the use of online instructional methods in order to continue to deliver high quality instruction to students. As a result TEEAP and NJTEEA have decided to join efforts to aid our members in sharing content and ideas that can be delivered in an online setting only. We encourage anyone who is developing lessons for use online, to share to their content with others. We have setup a Google Drive that should be shared with any developing useful materials. To access the drive please click here. Please consider helping our fellow members develop lessons and help our profession deliver quality content during this unprecedented situation.
