The Virtual STEM Showcase is seeking submissions from K-12 students starting Monday, February 1st through Sunday, March 14th. The event, now in its 9th year and it's second consecutive in a virtual format, is put on by the Apple STEM Network and GWATA.

On the Apple STEM Network's website there are six different pages that give project ideas in the showcase's six categories: craft, design, engineering, coding, science, and tutorials.

GWATA Executive Director Jenny Rojanasthien said, "So if a family is wanting to do it together, they can look at different project ideas to get going. This is also a resource for educators who are integrating STEM learning in the classroom."

The public is encouraged to vote on the projects online. Projects can even be shared online, and those doing so are encouraged to use the hashtag #TechMeOutNCW.

Students can submit as many projects as they want. The top two vote-getting projects in the K-5, 6-8, and 9-12 categories will each get a $100 gift card and their project will be displayed online.
