2016 STEM Expo Review
Congratulations to Favour Orji, 1st place STEM Expo winner
Not Your Average Science Fair
To be ready for college, workforce training, and life in a technological society, students need the ability to gather, comprehend, evaluate, synthesize, and report on information and ideas, to conduct original research in order to answer questions or solve problems, and to analyze and create a high volume and extensive range of print and nonprint texts in media forms old and new. ” –Core Standard (The Common Core)
The format of the Expo project presentations simulates college and beyond academic presentations– e.g. papers presented at conferences, thesis defense. It took place at Seattle University so that students had a college awareness experience, a component of college readiness.” – Sarah Wilkes, TAF Academy College and Career Readiness Manager.
