Middle School STEM Challenge

TAIT, the world market leader in designing, constructing and delivering live events solutions, is offering Middle School students an opportunity to create a live event featuring a main stage, sound system, overhead rigging, automation and scenic elements. Students must use the materials provided by TAIT Towers as well as class room supplies such as tape, scissors, markers and rulers to build their own live event. Meet the members of the 5 TAIT Challenge Crews:

Here is the stage. The cookie sheet must be positioned in the middle of two chairs 24 inches apart.

Crews received their packet of materials along with a card that explained their goals for the live event. Crews shared the element they plan to build and identified what other crews they need to work with in order to build their element. Crews also decided on the type of live event they will be featuring. Looks like they’re going with a musical! Here’s a shot of the brainstorming session from today.

Notes From The First Production Meeting

Students will meet 2 more times to plan and build their element of the live production. On December 13th students will set up all elements of the live production. I will take a highlight video of each crew explaining what elements they built, the materials they used and why they chose to build the way they did. The video will be submitted to the TAIT Challenge at the end of class. Stay tuned to see what these 14 creative 7th and 8th graders come up with!
