Innovate RE-4 Learner's Showcase 2018

SAVE THE DATE for the 2018 Innovate Learner's Showcase

March 1, 2018

Severance Middle School


What is the Learner's Showcase?

Innovate RE4 Learner’s Showcase is a districtwide, K-12 opportunity for Weld RE4 students and their teacher sponsors to showcase innovative learning happening within and outside the walls of our eight schools. Students are encouraged to submit proposals for their projects early in the year, and work to polish their public speaking & presentation skills weeks before the Showcase. The culminating 2.5 hour event features individual presentations, group projects, poster sessions and a Maker Faire, and student-led opening and closing ceremonies. To conclude the evening, scholarships are awarded to top presentations from Windsor High School, thanks to the generous contribution of the Weld RE4 Education Foundation.

Who's invited?

Students, parents, teachers, family, and friends. Business owners, local organizations, governmental leaders and community members are encouraged to witness modern day learning that is preparing students for their future beyond high school.

A link to the digital invitation will be coming soon.
