St. Clare School 2014 - 2015
St. Clare's held its STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) Expo on Friday, February 13, in the school auditorium. The eighth graders were all involved in a special design challenge involving the development of hubs or learning spaces for ocean studies. The students were divided onto 13 teams that worked on reports, powerpoints, posters, blueprints, 3D virtual models and physical models as well as infomercials. They were judged by professional engineers and architects from Scape and Rebuild by Design as well as representatives from the Governor's Office of Storm Recovery and the Billion Oyster Project.
There were a variety of other STEM-based projects in grades 4-8 invoking bridge design, inventions, experiments with connections to current events and current research, and even Lego exhibits. High school and college students were guided by educators, scientists and other senior mentors in the judging process.
The winners will be announced at a special awards assembly on. The Total Destruction round of the Battle of the Marshmallow Bridges will serve as the highlight at the event. The students will also see a slideshow of pictures from the Expo.
