Tech the Halls
It’s never too early to discover STEM! Join the Foundation for East Baton Rouge School System to learn more about how EBRPSS elementary schools are solving real world challenges and gaining valuable STEM skills through LEGO robotics. During this first elementary Expo, student teams across the city who have been working on a “community-in-need” design challenge will showcase their research-based solutions and construct on-the-spot a motorized model of model of what they learned. Throughout the process, teams have learned about teamwork, wonders of technology, and core values which include respect, sharing and critical thinking. Not intended as a competition, teams will share their innovative solutions to community issues such as food and build a machine to perform a related task. In conjunction with the Expo, students and other participants are asked to bring a food or toy item to be donated to a local shelter. In addition, STEMup BR staff will be onsite to recruit STEM volunteers for the spring semester.
