You need to pass the arguments from the function to the create() method:

from models import Challenge
def create_challenge(name, language, steps=1):
    Challenge.create(name=name, language=language, steps=steps)
    #pass  #<-- not needed

Bonus: To improve your coding style: Do not put spaces around "=" in argument assignments.
