2023 Chandler Innovation Fair Highlights

Chandler Innovation Fair

  • The STEAM and science culture of CUSD serves to ignite students’ natural curiosity about the world. The Chandler Innovation Fair provides ALL students an opportunity to use that curiosity to explore, discover, and present. We build and utilize community partnerships to support students as they innovate, investigate, and problem-solve solutions in a rapidly changing world.

    CIF goes beyond traditional science and engineering fairs to encourage innovation in a range of categories that cut across multiple content areas.  Chandler has been hosting the Hamilton Invitational Science and Engineer Fair for decades.  We realized pathways into STEM careers are becoming more diverse and our solution was to expand the fair to include categories for Project-Based Learning, Computer Science, Robotics, Invention Convention, and Arts.  The student-centric fair incorporates opportunities for students in Career and Technical Education (CTE) to showcase their skills in authentic learning experiences.

    Partnering with professional organizations and businesses in the area gives our students the chance to see how STEM skills are applied in the workforce.  Working professionals willing to share their journey and experiences can have a profound and positive effect on helping inspire our students to continue with their love of science, technology, engineering, math, and innovation!
