Funds from this grant will be used by teachers to create a CSI themed STEM Fair (formerly known as a Science Fair) for the entire student population to compete in. Winners of this school based STEM competition will go on to compete in the SCSD regional SUNY ESF Science Fair and the Greater Syracuse Scholastic STEM Fair at the MOST. Technology and materials purchased with grant funds will be used in extensive STEM programs and presentations. For students choosing to design and create a model for green technologies, SECME Club engineering students may help guide additional work for peers on how to utilize technology and engineering learning standards. Guest speakers from local business and Industry, as well as college professors, will be invited to speak at a mini Jr. Cafe’ Scientifique (like the model currently in place at the MOST) to help spark ideas and deepen student interest in STEM research, in hopes of leading to a future STEM path of study. Students will also be encouraged to apply for a SEEDs for Science support grant from Dr. Ghosh at SU College of Engineering Computer Science to help further create student ownership for STEM research.
