Educational leaders have the opportunity to support their students.
The Digital Vision STEM Competition and Tech Expo is a one-day event combining the excitement of competition with the power of the STEM industry. First, participants aged fourteen through eighteen have the opportunity to demonstrate their best technological inventions. Unlike a traditional competition where participants compete against each other, in this event, they are competing against themselves.
The competition is held in three, 1-hour rounds. Each participant and supporting family will bring in and demonstrate a technical solution that solves a problem. The goal for each participant is to explain what the technology is, how it works, and what problem it solves. Each hour, judges will walk around the venue picking two to three semi-finalists. After all semi-finalists have been chosen, they will compete in a live demonstration before the entire attending audience. Winners will be chosen based on a variety of criteria that will be explained during the event. Judges will award first, second, and third place prizes. All other finalists will receive a participation gift. Participants who do not place will have the opportunity to win prizes from venue sponsors.
The tech expo will give those in industry the opportunity to showcase latest technologies for business and home use. It gives professionals an opportunity to network. It also gives those in industry the opportunity to scope new talent.
Additionally, educational leaders from the neighboring k12 schools will have the opportunity to support their students. At the same time, college recruiters will have the opportunity to talk with youth and parents as they look towards college entry within a year or two.
