See attached word documents for developing your idea for project #2.  If you feel that you can make your idea into a business sure to complete the Business Model Canvas document as Brilliant Labs may support any required materials.  Also, use the SuperPowerChallenge notes on each section of this model for filling your own plan.  Otherwise, complete a project proposal much like you did for project #1.  Be sure to include relevant links, pictures, designs, materials, etc... to support your proposal.  Make sure to save the word document including the name(s) and project title.

NOTE:  Max this time is two per group or done individually.  I will announce due date on these documents next week.

Congratulations to the groups that participated in the North Shore Regional STEM Fair at JMH on Tuesday - Wil/Zach;  Ben/Eric; Dylan/James/Gui.  It was a great day for everyone who participated.  Next up is an opportunity to participate in River Valley Science Fair held at UNB Fredericton on April 15.  Because of travel challenges, ASD-North does not coordinate travel for this event.  However, we will make arrangements to make sure you are able to participate if interested.

  • Registration Deadline for the event is April 8.
  • This event requires a Written Report submitted when the project is registered (an sample report can be found here...
