Brookfield Central Cafeteria

Student Interests Guiding Learning

Students Sharing Their Learning

What is it?

This term Brookfield Central High School physics students were asked to identify a interest, passion, or curiosity. They were then given time in class to follow an inquiry model to investigate a specific question related to the topic they choose. The Personal Project Expo will be a chance for them to share this learning with a public audience.

Why we want you there?

In most classes, when students put together presentations or research, the only audience they ever present to are their classmates. Students in band and theater prepare performances for public audiences. Why should a science class be any different. So, we would love for you to come and be our audience.

Who is it for?

The event is free and intended for a general audience of all ages. The student presentations are designed for an audience who knows nothing about physics.

What is the format?

The structure of the expo will be pretty straight forward. It will be a one hour experience. There will be 30 minute halves. Half of the students will man stations to present their learning for 30 minutes while the other half plays the role of audience. The second half they will switch roles. This was done to make sure that students were able to see other projects and to make sure all students had an audience. I am not a believer in "if you build it they will come". So, we need that built in audience. It is my hope that we will be able to spread the word and get more than just my students in the cafeteria the night of June 6th.

When is it?

The expo will take place Wednesday January 17th from 6 - 7 PM.

Attend for as long as you can. Even if you just see one station, the students will appreciate it.

Where is it?

The expo will take place at Brookfield Central High School in the Cafeteria.
