2024 Applied Learning Student Showcase

Date: Friday, May 10, 2024

Time: 8:30am to 12:30pm

Location: The TRACK
91 Guest Street
Boston, MA 02135

An end of year student showcase for Project Lead The Way (grades 5-12), OpenSciEd (grades 6-8), PBLWorks and ST Math (grade 5) schools in MA for students to share their Applied Learning projects with industry professionals.  This is an opportunity for students to present their project work to authentic audience. Student teams will each have a table to present their project and 500+ industry professionals will circulate and talk with student groups — offering them verbal and written feedback. In addition to the showcase portion of the event, we will also have an awards ceremony, lunch, and more!

Start getting ready for showcase by:

  • Saving the date!
  • Consider how you will select what projects to bring to showcase. We know this can be tricky for schools – see the FAQs for additional guidance.
  • Identify one chaperone to attend per program (e.g., if your school brings OSE and PLTW Gateway teams, you need a minimum of 2 chaperones).
  • Start thinking about transportation; regional transportation may be available upon registration
    (There is ample parking available near the venue with a max height of 8ft.)
