 Lady Flyers STLP

 

At Franklin County High School, a group of students had an idea along with a goal to reach out to younger girls in their school system. The STLP group knew that getting girls involved in technology is important.  The group decided to use STEM: science, technology, engineering, and math concepts to teach younger girls. To find interested girls, they used social media to reach out to girls, ages 3 to 8. The STLP groups decided to create a day where the young girls would come to Franklin County High School and learn.  On “Lady Flyers Day, “ the students participated in four stations that represented each of the STEM categories. The young girls were divided into four groups which traveled to each of the four stations.

The science station involved creating a volcano to learn about chemical reactions. The technology stations used Spheros and Ozobots to begin learning coding to move the robots.  The station for engineering was making paper airplanes and then testing them to see which design flew the furthest. Finally, the math station allowed the girls to play Jenga as they correctly answered basic math questions. The future plans of this group include hosting the girls back again with even more to learn in STEM. This was a really fun time for the students involved, both young and older!

 

Title: A Wrinkle in Time

Student Name: Kennedy P.

Category: Book Trailer

Division: 6-8

Process:

I chose the book A Wrinkle in Time. I chose it because it has a lot of creative and colorful thinking in it and I thought it would be fun to reenact that. I started out by writing a script and picking people in my STLP class to be different characters. I started filming after I had the whole script and I filmed about one and a half scenes each day for like a week. Then I used the app iMovie to put all the videos together in one. It took about a day to edit the video and my finished product was a minute and 90 seconds. I cited my source using citationmachine.com at the end of my book trailer.

Title: The Outsiders

Student Name: Claire G. and Madison M.

Category: Book Trailer

Division: 6-8

Process:

Our first step was choosing the cast. We chose the cast based on their likeness to the characters in the book. Next, we wrote a script. Our next step was practicing each scene to make sure it was like the book. After that, we looked for the best app to edit the book trailer. Lastly, we added music, text, and the book citation.
