STEAM Project Showcase


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.


Steps


  1. Students will create their STEAM Project, make a video and upload it via Flipgrid.

  2. Students can use the script template for the 3-5 minutes video.

Videos must include:

        • Introduction (Student name/s, Grade, Homeroom Teacher)

        • Project Title

        • Project Detail.

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.
