STLP 2018

November 29, 2018– Kentucky students from more than 40 schools competed at Northern Kentucky University in the state’s Student Technology and Leadership Program (STLP) Regional Event.

The Kentucky Department of Education’s STLP uses project based learning principles to empower student learning and achievement through the utilization of technology to solve school and community needs. STLP provides a means for student to design, make, connect and learn.

Students in grades three through 12 set up project tables to showcase their work and demonstrated their technology projects to judges.

“We continue to see the importance technology plays in classrooms every day,” said Dr. Alar Lipping, College of Education and Human Services interim dean. “It’s great to see how enthusiastic young students are about the future and technology.”

The Regional Fall Showcase on November 19 served as a qualifier for STLP groups to compete at the state level. This was the first of the “Big 3” STLP events. For more information on STLP competitions, visit here.
