Meaningful Math and STEM Showcase

This event will challenge students to examine real situations- in their school, community, or the world at large - identify how mathematics is present in the issue, and demonstrate how mathematics can be used to find a solution. Students will be encouraged to put their training in mathematics to the test, taking their learning experiences and applying their skills to matters that exist beyond their textbook.

The purpose is for students to:

  • Develop new skills in mathematics
  • Reflect and strengthen their relationship with mathematics
  • Expand their intellect by using mathematics to analyze and critique real issues
  • Explore ways in which mathematics can be used to solve injustices or transform social imbalances

Participating students will present their processes and findings to their peers at the showcase through visual means, such as: Trifold posters, video/media presentations, models/diagrams, etc. While the showcase is not a competition, there will be awards and acknowledgments given to both students and teachers for their participation.

Along with presenting their projects, students can look forward to participating in STEM activities provided by community partners. The showcase is an opportunity for students to connect and reflect with their peers.

Notable quotes about Showcase Impact: 

“Joy was found by realizing that speaking up could potentially decrease the time in EMS response and more lives will be saved. My favorite part of the process was working together and gathering information about something that is important to my community.”

“I found this project to be quite interesting and engaging due to what the whole topic of the project is about. My favorite part of the process was being able to pick a important problem in our community and bring more awareness to it through mathematics. Some parts of the project I found a bit challenging, but for the most part I enjoyed doing this project.”
