o p x E e c n e i c S TMP Please participate if you are interested in STEM or if you are interested in getting extra credit for a class. You may work with a partner. Teachers who are offering extra credit: Scott Voorhies, Hilary Hale, Jody Le. Fevers, Beth Roop, Sky Tallman, Rebecca Birch, Steve Rogers Expo date: April 15 th, 2016!
If you are participating for extra credit in a class. . . • Decide what class you need/want the credit in (this can be cross curricular) • Talk to the teacher about that class or classes and get your participation approved • Form a hypothesis or question and have your idea approved by Scott V. and your teacher(s) If you are participating for fun… • Form a hypothesis or question and have your idea • approved by Scott V. He’s an approachable guy.
Steps for Success. . . • Submit a paragraph explaining your project to Scott V. and your teacher(s) by December 10 th • formatting instruction • Submit a log that tracks the progress of your experiment and contains reflections about the process once every two weeks • you can use a journal, a Google. Doc, a video log, etc. • Create a final presentation and display board due April 15 th • board must include: a title and your name, problem statement or project description, methods/procedure, materials, pictures or graphs, results, discussion/analysis, conclusion, any physical result
Examples. . . • Biology: scan the life stages of a living organism, on the SEM, and explain each stage in detail • Environmental Science: print the parts for a wind turbine on the 3 D printer and assemble the turbine • Economics: predict patterns of stocks using computer programs like Net. Logo, Star. Logo, Python, C++, etc. • English: extend your board for Hillary’s class, research (in depth) the history of a book from her class and produce graphs with some data that you found regarding that time period. Ex: “The • Grapes of Wrath”. For this book research • how many people lost jobs during that • time, or the infant mortality during the • depression
Examples. . . • • • History: program and track the effects of any war or disease on a population Geometry: print geometric shapes on the 3 D printer (this requires learning how to use Solid. Works) Algebra: graphing or analyzing data Sci. Tech: build a model of the solar system using a program or using the 3 D printer • Physical Science: track your average work • done over a 10 day period, create a video • example of this and voice over it
Lab Hours • Scott V. and Chloe Puglisi will host lab hours • Anyone can attend Tuesday or Thursday 3: 30 -4: 30 in room 320 • Individual times can be discussed with either Scott or Chloe for people who need help with: • learning a programing language • using how to use the SEM or 3 D • printer • analyzing data
Remember • This counts as extra credit for those who need it; you can get extra credit in more than one class • Entry paragraphs are due December 10 th • Everyone must keep a bi-weekly log • Lab hours are available • Final presentation and display board are due April 15 th
