Need some examples of what we are looking for?
It can be anything that your students create!
No idea is too small to show off at the SOAR Summit. But just in case you are wondering about what other schools did before, here are a few examples to help bring some inspiration:
Pikeville Independent: Created innovative apps using Code.org
Floyd County School of Innovation: Various Projects
Floyd County School of Innovation brought a couple of groups of students that helped expand and bring various different types of projects to showcase.
The engineering students presented two projects: robotic hands/modeling prosthetics and an adaptive Halloween costume for a local student in a wheelchair.
The wheelchair project was actually featured in a WYMT article, Once in a lifetime chance: high schoolers create adaptive wheelchair costumes for elementary school students, you can read the article HERE.
Computer Science Students:
The computer science students presented projects that covered drones in healthcare and another project that presented their projects using their coding in Python and Java – these projects ranged from currency converters, language translators, and a figure-8 ball.
Want to showcase?
We can’t wait to read and see what your students have in store to showcase! This is a great chance for them to present their designs, talents, and gifts to those attending the SOAR Summit.
