Riverview Intermediate Unit 6 Computer Fair held March 23 at Clarion University

CLARION, Pa. – On Friday, March 23, Riverview Intermediate Unit 6 sponsored the Regional Computer Fair at Clarion University.

This annual competition is open to any student in grades six to 12, attending a private or public school or in a state-approved home school program. The competition highlights computer technology integration within the classroom and recognizes student achievement.

Students are able to unleash their creativity, convey information dynamically, apply state standards, and collaborate to create innovative projects.

There are six different categories students can choose to compete in: Animation, Computer Fair Logo, Digital Movie, Graphic Design, Programming, and Web Page Design. Regional competitions are held at intermediate units throughout the commonwealth for a chance to advance to the Statewide Computer Fair event, which will be held at Dickinson College in May 2018.

Workshops and Tours

Dr. Lacey Fulton, assistant professor in the Communications Department at Clarion University, opened up Becker Hall for the students participating in the Computer Fair. She led a tour and provided exploration time in the WCUC-FM radio station and CU-TV studio.

Facilitated by Mr. William Adams, a Communications instructor, and Kyle Kauffman and Samantha Gatesman, CUP communication students, the middle school students participated in a field studio activity where they wrote a script, recorded, and edited an “Interrogation short.”

The final product was shown theater style, including a comical blooper reel.

The students enjoyed a walk across campus for lunch in Eagle Commons, and a trip to campus wouldn’t be complete without a Starbucks stop along the way.
