ocMaker Challenge


The health and wellbeing of everyone who participates in the ocMaker Challenge is always our top priority; therefore, the 2020-2021 ocMaker Challenge will be virtual. 

Together, we are navigating through these uncharted territories. As we pivot into this virtual landscape, we know this presents an exciting opportunity to develop unique learning and authentic experiences for students in Orange County!​

​​The ocMaker Challenge is an integrated STEM design project delivered in classrooms. Combining elements of STEM technologies, art, and design, the ocMaker Challenge promotes a culture of inquiry and problem solving and provides Pre-K through post-secondary students a real-world authentic experience.​

Students are prompted to:
Design and build, or significantly repurpose a product that solves a problem, need or want.​
