All Stars win the STEM Saturdays Competition This past Saturday afternoon, more than 40 parents, volunteers and friends gathered at the Amundsen High School Auditorium to cheer for their favorite team in the Lumity STEM Saturdays competition. There were three teams of students, made up of rising seniors and recent high school graduates from Amundsen High School and Chicago Math & Science Academy. Each team presented the final project they’ve been working on for the past 12 weeks. With the help of volunteer coaches from Accenture, Allstate and GE Capital, these 13 students established a client relationship with local organizations, created a statement of work, established deliverables and implemented a plan to enhance the client’s web presence. Each group gave a presentation about their project, along with lessons learned and a demo of the website they created. The panel of judges were extremely impressed with the student’s work. In fact, the point difference between the three teams was so small, the judges suggested that each student in the other two teams also receive scholarship funds.
