Saturday, February 4th, Dallas hosted the largest STEM EXPO in the state and Design Connect Create was there. The event has held at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center and hosted 150 fun-filled, hands-on activities and exhibits that inspired, stimulated, and motivated students, teachers and parents to explore the world of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The Design Connect Create booth was packed with students and their parents trying to connect creativity with functionality to win the “Will It Float” challenge. Each contestant created a boat from a small foil square they imagined could hold 20 pennies before sinking under water. If their design didn’t work the first time, they could refine their original design and try again to win a prize. Flyers with information about this year's Dallas ISD camps were given to interested students.
Thanks to the volunteers Ed Bull, Amy Gow, John Harkins, and Danya Casey for their outstanding help at the event.
