AELP Technology Fair
The first-ever AELP Technology Fair was held at the Kirkendall Library on Thursday, May 5th. All of our elementary schools, 6-7 buildings, and 8-9 buildings were represented.
Students were given a month to work on their projects by completing a technology fair planning sheet and in some cases had to “win” their home building in order to advance. There were about 40 entries total. The projects were categorized according to their classification: web presence, graphic design and publishing, coding, innovative technology use, etc. Danfoss was on site to teach about hydraulics and the robotics team did demonstrations.
Projects were judged on a rating scale similar to show choir or band competitions. Judges consisted of parent volunteers, district office staff, instructional coaches, and community volunteers. Judges and participants filled out a survey for suggestions to improve the fair for next year.
Thank you and congratulations to all of our Technology Fair participants and volunteers!
