What Happens at the Digital Showcase? Students (with the help of creative educators) lead hands-on presentations that demonstrate how technology has impacted their life in the classroom. Typically, students will demonstrate an activity or project that they completed in class with the help of technology. The audience members usually spend around 3-5 minutes at each booth, so the prep needs are minimal. This is a "come and go" event for audience members and usually lasts from 5:30pm-7:00pm.
We invite local businesses to attend so that they can view the student/teacher presentations and give them feedback about how the work they are doing with technology is preparing them for exciting career opportunities outside of school. Usually, these businesses will also bring something 'fun' and host a booth from their industry as well. In the past, we've had guests from Dow, BASF, Microsoft, MSR Houston, Brazosport College, Layer 3 Communications, Brazoria County Libraries, Leeroy's Esports, and Square 3 IT, bring items such as robots, drones, computers, race cars, infrared cameras, Oculus Rift VR headsets, medical displays, and more. What booths have teachers and students led in the past?
