The contest consists of 3 rounds. First round submissions require a pitch video and short description of your game. The top entries will move onto round two and send in game rules and a how to play video. The top 5 entries from round two will move onto round three where they will send in a physical prototype of their game. Judges will play the 5 finalists and choose a winner.

The acronym STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. This approach to education is designed to revolutionize the teaching of subject areas such as mathematics and science by incorporating technology and engineering into regular curriculum by creating a “meta-discipline.”
