• LCPS STUDENT MAKER SHOWCASE

  • The LCPS Student Maker Showcase is a public showcase of student invention, creativity and resourcefulness. It is Loudoun County’s show and tell for hands on learning. Most importantly, The LCPS Student Maker Showcase is a fun, engaging and exciting student exhibition of making in school. The festival will be a mash-up of an art show, science fair, robotics competition, craft fair, STEM day and hackathon.

     

    The 1st annual LCPS Student Maker Showcase will be held on Thursday, May 3, 2018, at Brambleton Middle School as an evening event from 5:30-8:00 pm. Schools will apply to exhibit student projects as well as showcase their makerspaces and hands on learning initiatives.

     

    The LCPS Student Maker Showcase is a celebration in the style of Maker Faire. (In 2016 there were over 190 Maker Faires globally with over 1.45 million attendees.) At the 2017 NoVa Maker Faire, four LCPS schools exhibited work:

     

    • Dominion High School showcased student entrepreneurship projects created in CTE classes.

    • Eagle Ridge Middle School showed Cardboard Art Sculptures.

    • The Loudoun Academy of Science demonstrated engineering research projects including a quadcopter designed to do construction work in dangerous environments.

    • The Harmony AT Maker Club showed ride on cars that they had modified to give students with disabilities independent mobility.
