The Thumb Area STEAM Showcase is looking for projects, displays, and presentations from local schools that showcase the excellent STEAM activities being done in districts across the county. Classroom teachers, leaders of projects or clubs, or any school group related to science, technology, engineering, the arts, or mathematics can apply.
A $200.00 donation will be awarded to each approved application.* All projects, activities, presentations should be in some way connected to STEAM. Some examples might include:
Underwater ROV or IVD vehicles
Science fair displays
Science club displays or activities
Problem-solving teams (i.e., Destination Imagination, Science Olympiad, Academic Games)
Innovative art exhibits (Recyclables, Design/Engineering, Nature/Environment)
*Due to space and budget requirements there are a limited number of applications that can be accepted. The Thumb Area STEAM Showcase planning committee will distribute donations as equitably as possible to schools across the county taking into account school population, geographic location, variety of projects, and “fit” to STEAM context. Notifications will be made by April 26, 2017.
