STEM Fair

 

UPPER MARLBORO, MD— For the second year in a row, Robert Goddard French Immersion students had the opportunity to submit Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) projects electronically.

“Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are directly linked to global competitiveness” said Dr. Alvin L. Crawley, Interim Superintendent of Schools. “We live in a technological society. This project gives our students the opportunity to be creative, as well as enhance their technology skills.”

The virtual STEM Fair projects were viewed on computers and iPads as opposed to viewing a physical display. Students presented real-world technical presentations, incorporated computer-based learning and reduced material used by submitting their products electronically.

“The virtual STEM Fair is now our new tradition,” said Nasser Abi, acting principal at Robert Goddard French Immersion School. “Our goal is to make sure our students love science and excel at all levels.”
