Eighty-four students recently participated in Adamstown Elementary’s annual “Academic Showcase.” Students in grades first through fifth were invited to participate.

The showcase is an event that encourages students to research and dig deeper into an area of individual interest. Topics fall into many categories such as history, science, pop culture, sports, robotics, famous people and hobbies. After researching their area of interest, students share their learning with others through some kind of visual display of their choice. It is exciting to see students’ enthusiasm for their topics and for sharing their new-found knowledge.

Shown are students and families checking out the many projects on display.
