Exploring virtual reality through apps, using Chromebooks and iPads to create movies and daily news broadcasts, and building tiny homes to explore future careers in construction. Northside schools are finding unique ways to engage students in learning and an annual event allows students and teachers to share the successes from their campuses.
Students from more than 105 elementary, middle and high schools will participate in this year’s Expo, which has been split into two days due to high attendance in previous years. Also new this year are displays from Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs.
Schools will have tables at the Sports Gym and visitors will watch technology demonstrations, robotics demonstrations, and talk to students and teachers in an interactive and informal setting. Some programs, like the tiny home and automotive programs, will showcase their work outside the Sports Gym due to space constraints. Among the topics showcased this year are: mobile devices in the classroom, campus camps and clubs, real world projects, and global learning experiences.
