The 9th Annual Northville STEAM Fair (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) for our students, families, and the community, will take place on Tuesday, April 25th - Wednesday, April 26th.

*4th Graders from all Elementary buildings attend the STEAM Fair as a visitor to view all of the wonderful exhibits.  More information about this field trip will be coming soon.  
The 2023 theme is “Inspire - Imagine - Invent” which is a focus on using engineering and design to create mind-blowing innovations.  Through a generous donation from the Northville Educational Foundation, and our partnerships with other community partners, we are able to provide an exciting, hands-on learning opportunity for our students and families.
In order to aid in our planning, Project Ideas will be taken from now until APRIL 7th.  Final Project submission forms will be sent out to those who pre-register their Project Ideas. You still have time to work on your project after you submit your Project Idea.  The Final Project submission due date is April 19th, you can still work on your project until the STEAM Fair, but this form will ask for Project Creators, Project Title, Project Description and other logistical information.  
Presenters can choose to create a project for Display Only and not attend the STEAM Fair, their project will be on display for everyone to see.  Or you can do a Student Led Project and attend the STEAM Fair on the following dates:
  • Tuesday, April 25th - 6:00pm - 8:00pm for the Community Event
  • Wednesday, April 26th - 9:00am - 1:30pm for the 4th Grade Student Visits
