Sustainability Showcase on April 23

Sustainability Showcase on April 23

 

The 3rd Annual Sustainability Showcase is this weekend, Saturday April 23, 2016 at California State University Fullerton! Over ninety students from eighteen elementary, middle and high schools throughout Orange County will take part in the Sustainability Showcase with presentations highlighting the students' solutions to global issues affecting their local communities or countries of origin.  

 

The goal of the showcase is to help students develop the skills needed for a competitive market; such as verbal communications, articulating complex topics, and advocacy, by relating issues to their own lives and communities. Each presentation will identify a problem and suggest a solution related to the environment, alternative energy, health or sustainable design.

 

"The global problems facing the next generation of Americans will bring immense challenges as well as tremendous opportunities,” said Anaheim Union High School District Superintendent Mike Matsuda. “It will take innovators and entrepreneurs in the STEAM field (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) in order to solve sustainability issues, including climate change, healthcare, alternative energy, water conservation, or sustainable food.”  
 

The presentations will be similar to the popular TED Talks format. Elementary students will have up to 3 minutes to give a speech or a performance that can be augmented by multimedia, such as a video or animation on their topic. Middle school students will have 6 minutes and high school students will get up to 8 minutes for their presentations.

 

This event is open to the public and free to attend. Free parking is also available at CSUF lot F.
