Mark your calendars for the 4th annual OSD Technology Fair on Saturday, January 20 at Capital High School.

The free event, which is open to all students, families and the community, will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Capital High Commons, 2707 Conger Ave. N.W. in Olympia.

This year’s theme is “Connect, Collaborate, Create.” School booths will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Students and teachers from all levels will showcase how technology is integrated in classrooms and curricula. Student technology presentations will take place from 1 to 3 p.m.

This year’s winning logo was designed by Catherine Savel, a 9th grade Olympia High student in Kelly Boyer’s class. Her submission was selected by a committee from approximately 150 submissions from elementary through high school. A slideshow of all entries will be shown at the fair.

Each school also has the opportunity to enter a student team in a Technology Challenge. The secret challenge will be revealed the morning of the Technology Fair.

Teams will work all morning to create a presentation and be evaluated in the afternoon beginning at 1 p.m. by a panel of local judges. Elementary and secondary students will respond to the same challenge question but be judged separately.

Several OSD departments will be on hand to demonstrate a variety of technology innovations across the district. We hope to see you there!
