One of the most anticipated parts of the STEM Games is without a doubt the knowledge competition, allowing participants to demonstrate their skillset in one of four arenas, each representing a particular STEM field. This year we have teamed up with Infineon in our technology arena and PBZ in the mathematics arena in order to make the most out of the problem-solving competition and provide competitors with challenging and relevant tasks. Our theme sponsors have chosen a sub-theme for an arena of their choice and will be sending experts who will serve as this year's mentors and jury members in the finals of the competition. Here’s everything you need to know about them!
