2020 AIChE K-12 STEM Outreach Competition | AIChE

The 2020 AIChE K–12 STEM Outreach Competition will take place Sunday, November 15, 2020. We’re excited to announce that this year’s competition will be held virtually for increased participation of K-12 students, parents, and educators.

The AIChE K–12 STEM Outreach Competition is presented by the AIChE K-12 Committee and Executive Student Committee and is generously supported by the AIChE Foundation. Through the AIChE K-12 STEM Outreach Competition, AIChE seeks to:

  • Connect members of the AIChE & K-12 communities
  • Increase the AIChE community’s engagement in K-12 STEM Outreach
  • Build & grow a central repository of educational resources for use in K-12 STEM Outreach initiatives


Open eyes to the wonders of STEM and inspire your peers when you showcase your interactive STEM modules to 100+ elementary, middle, and high school students, their parents and educators, and members of the AIChE community. 

Modules can take the form of discussions, demonstrations, or experiments, and can address any concept within the range of STEM, but will ideally connect to concepts or applications within chemical engineering. Each module will have both an experiential component and a written component.

Eligible AIChE members are encouraged to submit an entry for an opportunity to share their K-12 STEM module during the AIChE K-12 STEM Outreach Competition.
