The Daviess County Public Schools district is hosting an STLP Showcase on March 30, giving anyone who is interested a chance to see how DCPS students at all grade levels are using technology in today’s world. 

The event is scheduled from 6-7:30 p.m. on Thursday at Apollo High School (2280 Tamarack Road). 

The goal of the event is to bring together all STLP (Student Technology Leadership Program) students to showcase and recognize their innovative and unique projects and products in a setting designed to educate fellow students and the public.

The projects on display at the event are a cumulation of the student’s yearlong work that include digital art projects, videos, photos, and more. This year the showcase includes robotic demonstrations, a technology scavenger hunt, and student-led technology training. 

“This event is the time for these students to shine as each one shows off to parents, peers, and the community their technology leadership project that has been worked on for several months,” said Aaron Yeiser, DCPS Coordinator of Instructional Technology. “Also, this night serves as a final polishing of valuable presentation skills that are needed for the many students who will compete next month in the state level competition at Rupp Arena in Lexington.” 

STLP Projects that will be featured at the showcase include: 

  • Audubon Elementary: AES Yearbook and AES T-Shirt Design 
  • Deer Park Elementary: The Ranger Rewind 
  • Highland Elementary: GoFinder
