STEM FAIR

6TH Annual CMIT STEM FAIR

This year, CMIT is introducing its first Maker Faire in this 6th Annual STEM Fair. STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Maker Faire is primarily designed to be forward-looking expose, showcasing persons who are exploring new forms and new technologies. But it’s not just for the novel in technical fields; Maker Faire features innovation and experimentation across the spectrum of science, engineering, art, performance and craft.

Research/Inquiry projects in any of the STEM areas are mandatory to all middle school students and all high school students are encouraged to participate to create, problem-solve, innovate and showcase their inquiry skills and creative research abilities.

All of your teachers will be involved in supporting you and parts of your project will be evaluated in multiple subject areas. This means a good project will make differences in your report card without additional effort. STEM Fair category winners (first, second and third place) will be awarded one of the following prizes: Kindle Fire HDs, Kindle Paperwhites etc. The overall STEM Fair winners (first, second and third place) will receive iPad, laptop or Kindle Fire HD. Eligible projects will represent CMIT in the Annual Prince George’s Area Science Fair (in March) and other national STEM Fairs.
