Buildit Challenge is a 501c-3 charitable organization. We coordinate S.T.E.A.M. project fairs for schools and community groups. Our mission is to build communities of hands-on learners who are discovering ways to apply S.T.E.A.M. to fix, make, build, and change the world.
The challenge is for students to build an original game, gadget, or model from everyday materials like cardboard and recyclables. When students participate in this S.T.E.A.M. fair, they develop skills in resourcefulness, craftsmanship, creativity, project management, and (for many) teamwork. Events like Buildit Challenge lay the foundation for a culture of innovation and problem-solving in the next generation.
