Since 2017, STEM Academy and the Science Centre Singapore have collaborated to organise the inaugural Drone Odyssey national competition for primary and secondary school students.
Students were tasked to create a synchronised flight show, program their drones to autonomously navigate an obstacle course, or program their drones to scout an area. The objective of this competition was to introduce drones as a learning tool to hone students' critical thinking, as well as to encourage technical skillsets and an appreciation for disruptive technologies within the minds of students.

MakeX Spark is a creative design competition for students aged 6 to 13, promoting multidisciplinary learning within the fields of science and technology. It aims to build an appreciation for STEM subjects and to inspire youth to apply such knowledge in solving real-world problems.
STEM Academy participated in the 2020 online MakeX Competition, which required participants to use micro:bit microcomputers and Makeblock code to invent a device that would reduce household chores.
Out of 25 countries and more than 150 participating students, STEM Academy is proud to have 13 participating students who have received awards for the best overall invention, creativity, and technical ability. Additionally, the mentor for this competition, Koh Choon Chuan received the 'Excellent Mentor' award for his mentorship of the 13 students.
