General Information

This is an opportunity for all our inventors, scientists and engineers to share their ideas with our school community.  The STEAM Fair is an opportunity for students to explore topics within the STEAM fields.  Participation is completely optional and voluntary.  The STEAM Fair is not a competition, it is an opportunity for children to make meaningful connections to the real world as they develop the skills, behaviors, and dispositions necessary for college, career, and life readiness.

Project ideas should come from the students and students should drive their projects. It is important that students conduct their own research, experiments, and discovery—even if the experiment or design doesn’t work!  

 

Students may work independently, work with a partner, or work with a team—it’s their choice!  Partner or team members can come from different classes or grades. Maximum team size is four.

Student(s) will then present to friends and family at the Matunuck STEAM Fair Family Night on Tuesday, January 24th starting at 6pm.  Each student participant will present his or her project.  The Friends & Family presentation portion of the STEAM Fair is an opportunity for the student to present and talk about their work to an adult or peer who is likely not their teacher or their parent–another skill to practice.  If the student is not available on January 24th a pre-recorded video option will be available or the presentation can be displayed without the student presenter. 

ALL Students must register to participate in the STEAM Fair by January 17th.  There is no cost to participate, however the STEAM Fair Planning team needs to understand the number of participants for planning purposes.  Click here to Register.
