Student Opportunities

This year our theme is “Full STEAM Ahead.” The focus is on the amazing ways that students are using STEAM at school and in their communities to make the world a greener, healthier place. We are looking for student exhibitors and student speakers to participate in the event.

Student Exhibitors

MAEOE is looking for students that would like to share their work with others. The goal is to showcase your students' projects and be able to talk with other students about how they were completed. If you are enthusiastic about your Green School efforts and would like to share your achievements with like-minded peers, we encourage you to apply! Space is limited, so register early!

Student Speakers

With this year's theme, “Full STEAM Ahead: Hold the Environment in the Highest E-STEAM,” student speakers will focus on how schools are integrating S.T.E.A.M. into curriculum, projects, outdoor learning, and more and possibly with their communities to make the world a greener, healthier place. We are looking to highlight up to four student projects at the award ceremonies. If you teach in a K-12 Maryland Green School or are applying in 2018-2019 and have students who did a Green School-related project this year, you are eligible to apply for your students to present.

Presentations can describe projects that cover Water Conservation, Energy Conservation, Solid Waste Management, Habitat Restoration, Structures for Environmental Learning, Responsible Transportation, Healthy School Environment, Community Outreach, Stewardship, and more. Presentations should be dynamic, creative and fun for an audience of mostly students PreK-12.

Your students’ presentation should motivate other students to go back to their own schools and think about their role in their school and their community. Presentation length: 5 minutes maximum.
