By Staff | Dec 5, 2019

Guests can meet and interact with the students regarding their projects.

LAHAINA – The community is invited to Lahainaluna High School’s second annual Student Showcase event on Wednesday, Dec. 11, at 6 p.m. in the school’s cafeteria.

Themed “Celebrating Students’ Innovative Learning,” students will exhibit their Project-Based Learning (PBL) finished works that were implemented from various disciplines in science, technology, engineering, math, arts and social science.

There will be about 20 projects showcased.

Some of the projects are: “A Road Trip to Remember,” “A Cost-Effective Wedding Reception Using Linear Equations,” “Egg Drop Project,” “Flying In Style – Design and Development of a Bottle-Rocket Launched Parachute,” “Creating a Personal Fitness Plan,” “Windward Quintet,” “Macromolecules in our Diet,” “Design and Construction of Mousetrap Vehicles and Boomilevers,” “Is Lahaina Water Sustainable?”, and “Are Corporations Good or Evil?”

There will also be a learning station where guests will have an opportunity for hands-on activities like the spaghetti tower challenge, mystery architecture and yoga sessions.

PBL is a student-centered pedagogy that incorporates a high degree of student collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and communication.

Based on numerous research results, students have a deeper understanding through active engagements and discovery of real-world problems and challenges.
