Eighth Graders Research History, Predict Future of Innovation
At the Innovations Project exhibit, eighth grade students presented their research and predictions on a variety of topics, from the history of communication to nanotechnology, drones and robotics, law codification, music therapy and more.
Prior to the exhibit, the students spent several weeks investigating a topic of interest to them, learning about that topic’s history and present, then making predictions about its future. Students could either choose a suggested topic within the broader categories of literature, Judaic topics, science and history, or propose a topic of their own interest. Each student created a display that outlined their topics history, present and predicted future, as well as a creative representation of their findings.
