Event #2:   2:30pm - 4:30pm - ILA STEM Quiz Tournament
Students compete to test their knowledge about various STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) topics (including the inventions, innovations, and contributions of persons of African heritage to these fields).  Teams buzz-in to answer STEM-related questions posed by the QuizMaster.
