Call for students, educators to present at the NCW Tech & STEM Showcase August 24-27 in Waterville

Posted

WENATCHEE – NCW Tech Alliance is thrilled to announce that registration is now open for the highly anticipated NCW Tech & STEM Showcase. Students and educators are invited to showcase their innovative projects in technology and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) during the NCW Fair, from August 24 to 27 in Waterville.

After three successful years of virtual events, the NCW Tech & STEM Showcase returns in person, offering a unique opportunity for participants to exhibit their exciting work in areas such as robotics, virtual reality, computer science, and more. This year, the showcase will feature a dedicated section at the fair, allowing students and educators to present their projects in two-hour time slots, eliminating the need to present for all four days.

In partnership with Apple STEM Network and NCESD, the Tech & STEM Showcase will also include two other interactive offerings. The STEM MAKE Station will provide an engaging space for youth attending the fair to participate in hands-on projects with the assistance of volunteers. Participants can either complete the project at the fair or take it home to continue their STEM exploration. Furthermore, the Tech Help Booth will offer digital navigators who can assist individuals with basic technology and digital skilling needs, ranging from email account setup to guidance on using professional networking platforms like LinkedIn.

The NCW Tech & STEM Showcase presents a free and exciting opportunity for students and educators to exhibit their creativity and inspire the community to embrace and support STEM initiatives. There is no cost to participate, and entrance to the fair is included for all registered participants. Each presenter is required to dedicate only two hours to their showcase, ensuring flexibility and accommodating busy schedules. However, those interested can sign up for additional time slots to further showcase their projects.

Register now for the NCW Tech & STEM Showcase at ncwtech.org and seize this chance to display your technological prowess, connect with like-minded individuals, and contribute to the growth of the STEM community. Thank you Yahoo! and Microsoft for their generous support of this event.
