Chandler Innovation Fair - February 2020
The 2nd annual Chandler Innovation Fair (CIF) was an incredible success. More than 4,000 students were represented and over 5,000 people attended. CIF featured student innovation as the cornerstone, including the Hamilton Invitational Science and Engineering Fair research and projects, student inventions, project based learning presentations, computer science projects, robotics showcases, and elementary and junior high robotics competitions in both FLL and VEX. The Junior High State VEX Robotics tournament (hosted by Willis Firebots) was held at the event, and the Firebots took home the state championship. Every CUSD school was represented alongside over 60 interactive vendors and CTE programs. The award ceremony will take place on March 2 at the Chandler Center for the Arts. The award ceremony will feature keynotes from Intel and Camille Casteel, as well as special awards from our community partners: Intel, Waymo, SRP, State Farm, Grand Canyon University, and the City of Chandler.
