What is CMIT Stem Fair?
It is a school-wide STEM Fair that includes the topics related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. It is required for all CMIT students. All of your teachers will be involved in supporting you and parts of your project will be evaluated in multiple subject areas. This means a good project will make a difference in your report card without additional effort. STEM Fair category winners (first, second and third place) will be awarded Kindle Fire HDs, Kindle Paperwhites etc. The overall STEM Fair winners (first, second and third place) will receive iPad, laptop or Kindle Fire HD. Eligible projects will represent CMIT in the 66th Annual Prince George’s Area Science Fair (in March) and other national STEM Fairs.
