Abstract

As the need for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) professionals grows in the United States, the interest of students in STEM disciplines continues to decline [1]-[3]. To foster excitement for STEM subjects among K-12 students, outreach and informal education programs often aim to infuse STEM fields with the energy typically reserved for activities such as sports competitions [4].
