Five upcoming contests invite kids to get creative and focus their imagination and talent. Whether they’re writers, musicians, actors, or scientists, the next few months are jammed with events and competitions to inspire Pittsburgh youth.
We celebrated Earth’s New Year a few weeks ago, but the party for Mars is just getting started. On May 4, students, scientists, and as many as 10,000 revelers will descend on Mars, Pa., to celebrate the Martian New Year with food, festivities, and a STEAM competition for the region’s kids. Open to any high school student, the “Meet the MARS Challenge!” asks kids in grades 9-12 to identify and solve the potential problems of sending humans to the Red Planet.
