Student Showcase

We are excited this year to invite students and teachers to share some of the amazing learning that is occurring in schools throughout North Carolina! If you are interested in sharing a project that your students have participated in this year, we encourage you to submit a proposal for the Student Showcase Session.

The format for the Student Showcase Session is as follows:
Each group will have an exhibit table that is approximately 3' X 6' but will not have a backboard or something to project onto.
You may bring a backboard if you like, but it is not required. Many exhibitors just pull up their web sites or examples of student projects on computers that they bring. (Wireless access is available.)
On Thursday conference participants will visit each exhibit & have an opportunity to network one-on-one to learn about the various projects and talk with students.
Each group may bring 1 teacher per 5 students or up to two teachers and no more than 10 students.  Before and after the showcase, we encourage students and teachers to attend other sessions to take full advantage of this learning experience!

The deadline for submitting a showcase proposal is Friday, December 14. Notification of acceptance will be sent out to the primary contact by Friday, January 11.   If selected to present at the showcase, two teachers and the students they bring will receive complimentary registration for the conference.
