Middle School CAP Spring Exhibition
This semester in Middle School CAP the theme was STEAM. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. All of the innovative projects that were displayed at exhibition embody the excitement our students have to be creators!
We wanted to take this time to share some of the projects that the Middle School Students created and displayed at exhibition on Thursday, May 17th, 2018!
Mural: The students of CAP had a desire to make Carver Center a more beautiful place, so they designed a mural. They knew out theme for the semester was STEAM and embodied that in their amazing artwork. Before beginning the mural they had to create a proposal to present to the CEO and CLO of carver center in order to get approval. You will find the fabulous final mural on our Carver walls outside of the Tech Lab!
Website Design: The CAP tech experts were able to show off their skills through Google Websites. They first designed websites about one of their passions including soccer and jokes.
