Students in K-3 can present a project about anything that sparks their interest. For example, kindergarteners can present about horses or LEGOs. Students can also present an experiment to test a question (i.e. measure how fast ice will melt in hot or cold water, baking cookies with and without baking soda, etc.).
4-5th graders are encouraged to present a project in which they have investigated a topic, or conducted an experiment. If the students are working in a group, only one video needs to be submitted.
Students will create their STEAM Project, make a video and upload it via Flipgrid.
Students can use the script template for the 3-5 minutes video.
Videos must include:
Students can capture their face during Introduction and Project Title. During Project Detail section the camera must focus on the project display or be a video of the process. Students may upload only videos of the projects they have completed themselves.
Upload and submit the project video on Flipgrid via the Topic link/code shared by Ms. Melissa Ruben (Melissa_Ruben@mcpsmd.org)
Ms. Ruben will create the STEAM Week Topic on Flipgrid and invite all students to submit their projects. If you/your child did not receive the link/code please reach out to us.
On March 1, 2021 all students in the school will be able to view submitted projects using their Flipgrid account.
Make sure to Submit the Project before the Deadline of Saturday, February 27, 5 PM EST
Home room teachers will encourage students to visit the submitted and approved STEAM project videos during the asynchronous instruction days, and post an encouraging comment, and/or ask questions.
The teachers may also host discussions about the STEAM Projects on Flipgrid their students have visited.
All students who submit their project video will receive a Participation Certificate and gift.
The participation certificate and gift can be collected from the school office.
