PACA DIGITAL SCIENCE- STEM FAIR 2021 7th STEM projects – Science Technology Engineering Math This year students in the seventh and eighth grades completed a STEM project. Each class was given a selection of STEM challenges to choose from. There were a maximum of 4 students per a project challenge. These students were placed in groups where they could exchange ideas and thoughts on their particular challenge. Each student researched their challenge and wrote a short essay of their findings. All students also made a model or prototype to represent the solution to the problem within each challenge. Eighth grade students had the additional challenge to build their prototypes within a budget as compared to the real world. Due to the pandemic, students had to adapt to using materials available at home and limited testing opportunities. All students have made a video presenting their final solutions to their own STEM challenges and produced a power point that supports their work.
7th grade STEM challenge options: A touch of nature - Ecosystema Big, Bigger, Biggest - Redwoods and Sequoias Create a home - Bird house In the mist – Gorilla habitat Sunny-side Up – Solar ovens
