Bismarck Larks STEM All-Stars

2024 STEM All-Star Students



North Dakota’s Gateway to Science has teamed up with MDU Resources and the Bismarck Larks to bring STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) to the baseball field. Together, we understand the importance of equipping youth with the knowledge and skills to solve tough problems, gather and evaluate evidence, and comprehend information. This year North Dakota’s Gateway to Science is celebrating 30 years, MDU Resources is celebrating 100 years, and the Bismarck Larks are celebrating 8 years!

STEM All-Star Opportunity

Each year, six students from North Dakota schools who exhibit hard work, education, and a love of learning are selected as STEM All-Stars from nominations by their teachers.

MDU Resources also sponsors a $1,000 award for one nominating teacher to be used for a STEM project at their school. In honor of their accomplishment, the Larks will recognize each 2024 STEM All-Star during the STEM Night game. Each STEM All-Star receives the following:

  • Larks jersey with name on the back
  • Four Larks tickets to the STEM Night game
  • Recognition in the Larks STEM Night game program and on-field on STEM Night
  • Family 1-day pass to North Dakota’s Gateway to Science


In conjunction with the STEM All-Star recognition, the MDU Resources STEM Expo is held at the ballpark earlier in the day. This is a carnival-style event featuring hands-on STEM activities hosted by area businesses. The STEM Expo this year will be held June 1 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This event is open to the public!
