STEM Showcase 2020 gets bigger and better

With more than 800 students, parents, staff, and community members in attendance, EMS ISD's district-wide STEM Showcase featuring 300 student participants from grades PreK-12 was the largest and most succesful to date. The showcase was held at the Hollenstein Career and Technology Center on the evening of January 23.
The STEM Showcase is a complimentary effort across all disciplines featuring student projects that illustrate the critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, creativity and risk taking required for higher-level learning. The annual Showcase is an opportunity for all EMS ISD stakeholders to witness and celebrate the collaborative networks of STEM learning that are fostering the skills and growth mindsets among students and teachers in EMS ISD.

Theresa Parisi, Secondary Science Coordinator, is excited to see the event grow as STEM becomes infused throughout the EMS ISD curriculum at all levels.

"The EMS ISD PreK-12 STEM Showcase has grown not only in attendance and participation, but also in student communication, critical thinking and problem solving," Parisi said. "Over the past three STEM Showcases, we have witnessed our teachers and students become more confident in risk taking and the use of innovative skills. We are excited to see that the STEM Showcase is playing a role in inspiring our next generation of STEM leaders.”
