STEMeast Expo 2018

In Anglophone East School District, our Science classrooms are transforming to become STEM classrooms where Science, Technology and Mathematical skills are brought together to solve real-world problems.  Students learn collaboratively to solve their problem through a project-based approach.  They explore using hands-on activities through the Engineering Design Process to investigate possible solutions.


Our STEM East Expo is the next step in the evolution of science fairs.  In a science fair, the focus is on answering questions to satisfy a student’s curiosity about the world around them, whereas a STEM Expo is aimed at developing a solution to a real-world problem.  A science fair project can be an experiment, a demonstration or research on a topic, while a STEM Expo project is a showcase of creativity, ingenuity and self-reflection on a product that solves a problem.


Learning opportunities at the STEMeast Expo included: welding simulator, tower building challenge, solving puzzles, coding, home made hovercraft, and reverse-engineered bike.
