STEM Showcase Event
The student showcase event is a culmination of an industry-driven youth challenge at the end of the one-year professional development program. Students work in teams in afterschool clubs on projects that emerge from the iSTEM design challenges. Students upload a project poster and a 5-minute video presentation to share their projects on the BoilerSTEAM website. A panel of judges consisting of scientists, educators, and industry leaders from the local communities judge the students' projects. Students are evaluated on the targeted student outcomes of the project. The first-place teams from each subject area are invited to attend a student award event at Purdue campus to share their projects. Students' presentations on Purdue's campus will be video recorded for public sharing and students will interact with scientists in laboratories on campus.
