High School Challenge Program

High School and Middle School Faculty

The Alfred State High School Challenge Program is designed to bring small, affordable, entertaining projects to high school and middle school students. The program creates inter-curricular activities for a total educational experience. We believe entertaining, interactive projects, built around science, math, English, engineering, and technology will help create a well-rounded student.

The program is divided into two sections and offers projects for:

  1. Middle School
  2. High School

You can decide which projects you would like to use for your students. How you choose to integrate science, math, English, engineering, and technology into the projects is up to you.

We look forward to working with you!
