Showcase Projects

Students exhibit and discuss an authentic project that directly impacts a classroom, school, or community. Click category name for more information.

Robotics Display

Fayette County Public School STLP groups that are competing in the RCX or SumoBot competitions at the STEM Fair may elect to have a student-created display instead of a showcase. This unmanned robotics display would highlight your robotics program and help others to better understand the benefits of robotics. A robotics display cannot take the place of a showcase for a school who is not competing in RCX or SumoBots. A school competing at a location other than the STEM Fair is still required to have a showcase at the STEM Fair. Click category name for more information.
