Minnesota Zoo staff visited about 40 of Brad Nord’s students at SES in Apple Valley on Jan. 23 as part of the classroom phase of the ZOOMS STEM Design Challenge.

The program has had record participation this school year with 120 classrooms and 5,000 students from five states and two continents taking part. The program, offered through collaboration between the zoo and Flint Hills Resources, challenges students to create solutions to real-world zoo scenarios. Students are creating solutions to help the Malayan tapir this year, according to a news release.
