CUE is thrilled to announce that the CUE Student-Powered Showcase will be part of the CUE 2016 Fall Conference, to be held October 28-29 at American Canyon High School in Napa Valley. This addition marks the return of having students featured in the Fall Conference lineup.
Since 2003, the Student Technology Showcase has been a much anticipated part of CUE’s national conference in Palm Springs. The Showcase was originally sponsored by the California Department of Education and supported by California Technology Assistance Project (CTAP) and featured student technology-integrated projects that aligned with California state standards.
With the introduction of the Common Core State Standards and the focus on STEAM and the Maker Movement, CUE aligned the 2016 Showcase to reflect how students are learning by doing. The CUE Student-Powered Showcase (SPS) will invite conference attendees to participate actively with students in creating, problem solving, and learning. Attendees might collaborate with students on a robotics or 3D-printing project, or they might get down on the floor to figure out how a Sphero works. The SPS will be guided by a Task Force of innovative CUE members and is produced in partnership with the Orange County Department of Education.
The CUE SPS takes place on Saturday, October, 29, 2016 in the Cafeteria at American Canyon High School.
