Think BIG Project Display
The Think BIG Project Display was established as an area where schools could showcase and demonstrate their uniquely LARGE EAST projects at Conference. Examples from previous years include a weather balloon, a 3D printer, a hydroponics system and a drone.
Active EAST Program and EAST Core students are invited to showcase projects in this area that will not fit in their booth space. Students are not asked to create something new for this area or design a science fair type board. This space is reserved to showcase larger projects. Approval is required!
Due to the limited amount of space available, students may submit an online request by noon CST Friday, March 6. Click to access the Think BIG Project Display Request Form. If your project display request meets all criteria and we have configured all requests to fit in the space, you will receive a confirmation e-mail with approval to bring your display. Project requests will be approved on a first come, first served basis. Please make sure you receive this e-mail before you depart for Conference. Also, remember this area will probably have lots of people traffic and there is always a chance of something being broken. If you are worried about theft or accidents damaging your project, please consider not bringing the project or only displaying it in your booth.
BIGgest Showoff Award
Conference attendees will vote on their favorite large project display as part of the Best of Conference Awards. Schools wishing to be considered for this award MUST receive prior approval from the EAST Initiative staff to display any projects in the Think BIG Project Display.
Public Viewing Opportunities
The public is invited to view these projects during Exhibit Hall public hours. Please see the agenda for those times.
