Bowling Green Ind.Bowling Green Junior High6th - 8th DivisionSmart Matt: A Solution to Porch PiracyHave you ever gotten a package stolen from your porch? If so, you are among more than 23 million Americans who have had at least one package stolen from them! Porch piracy is a big problem, especially now during the pandemic when more people are shopping online. Our solution is the SMART MATT - a cordless, weight-sensored door mat that is activated when weight is placed on it. If not deactivated properly when the weight is removed, an alarm will sound and a notice will be sent to the homeowner's cell phone that the package has been stolen. We have analyzed competing products, researched technologies, solicited expert advice and shoppers' feedback, and created an infomercial for our product. With some promotion, we believe the mere presence of the SMART MATT may deter a potential thief. The SMART MATT can save people millions of dollars in merchandise and given them peace of mind while shopping online.4/4/2021 16:17:06

Madison Co.Model Laboratory School6th - 8th DivisionPet PalsPets have always been an important part of our lives, but especially during the COVID quarantines start last Spring. Spending more time with our pets has been good for the pets, but it's also been an important part of our mental health. With that in mind, we wanted to take the skills our 6th grade Digital Art students were learning and combine that with a good cause in our local humane society. Our teachers, students, and families were encouraged to submit a digital picture of their pets to our artists along with a $10 fee to the Humane Society Club at our school. Those pics would be sketches in styles ranging from realistic to abstract, cartoon to watercolor. All of the funds raised through the club would be given to the local humane society, and our clients would enjoy a digital copy of their sketched pet. This non-profit entrepreneurial venture is also categorized as a community service.4/6/2021 11:58:11

Newport Ind.Newport High School9th - 12th DivisionWildcat News ConnectCommunication is very important in a school district as it acts as a bridge for strong student, family and community partnerships. Students, families, community and business partners need to be informed as to what is going on with the schools. The pandemic and virtual environment have made good communication much more difficult.

Frankfort Ind.Frankfort High School9th - 12th DivisionLet's Get EngagedLet's Get Engaged is a study that assessed the engagement and sense of belonging within FHS students through digital surveys surrounding the House Games program! House Games was created and developed by myself (Ella A.) and Lilia S. as a Superintendent's Passion Project. What is House Games? It is the sorting of Frankfort High Students into one of four Houses (similar to Harry Potter Houses) randomly. The Houses consist of members from all grades, 9-12, sorted randomly to help with student engagement in our school. House Games were centered around academic excellence, identity, leadership, and service within the community. The students compete against other Houses in a competitive manner to earn House points through different activities. Points are logged using Google Forms. Students and Staff submit proof (picture of activity) and ask to be awarded points for the activity they completed. House Presidents approve points. We decided to do the Let's Get Engaged! project to see if our efforts were effective in its purpose. We are using the data to improve House Games and hope to add this program to the many traditions Frankfort High School already has even after Lilia and I have graduated.4/6/2021 14:27:54

Fayette Co.Bryan Station High School9th - 12th DivisionGlobal Time Capsule (GTC)Global Time Capsule is a web-based, interactive world map that will allow a user to ‘click’ on a specific country and gather information about it, from politics, to important foreign relations, to important events. In addition to this, GTC will also feature what we have called a “history slider”, where the user will be able to go “back in time”, and see this same information throughout different time periods. Our goal is to inform the general American population, which we have found to know little about the outside world, about foreign countries, and teach them to be well informed global citizens. This impact will be fully realized when we see others around us make use of GTC and use it to further their knowledge. 4/7/2021 11:16:06
Fayette Co.Bryan Station High School9th - 12th DivisionBSHS VR TourOur project is a VR tour of our school, that will also be published in a mode similar to Google Street View (so that VR goggles aren't required in order to view it). We created it to help students who are new to our school become familiar with the school building before actually going to school so they don't get lost. We were inspired to create this because we have 35 Oculus Go headsets at our school; several of the headsets with the tour on it will be available in our registrar's office for new students and parents to use. Also, having the tour available on a Google Street View type platform allows anyone with an internet-capable device to take a digital tour of our school.4/6/2021 21:17:32

Adair Co.Adair County Elementary SchoolK - 5th DivisionA Virtual Field Trip to the Louisville ZooMain Purpose: Create a Louisville Zoo Field Trip for our Students to enjoy and the teachers to use as a research resource. ACES STLP students created a project that would support the learning in our school during the COVID epidemic-for both virtual and face to face students. The group decided to create virtual field trips. The Louisville Zoo was chosen as the most popular choice.With limited face to face interaction, the group received instruction about digital citizenship and citing our sources. They researched valid and and safe sites to learn about the animals and explored the Lousiville Zoo website extensively for new animal information. Google meet lessons included teacher led lessons and assigned Edpuzzle tasks to check for understanding. Students were given the freedom to chose any Lville Zoo animal to research and create a slide. They were also encouraged to create slides that would be motivating and engaging to 3rd graders. The slide expectations were to create an engaging slide that included an attractive background, at least two photographs of the animal, an informative video and 3-5 short animal facts. They decided later to add some animal jokes. Each had to create at least one slide, but many enjoyed the activity so much, they created more than two slides. All slides were created by the students invidually or as a group. Changes were suggested and voted on, such as the loveable trip guide, Louie the Lizard. There is a Google Form for all users to rate the virtual field trip. Currently, the group is planning to create another Kentucky virtual trip to Kentucky Down Under. 3/23/2021 11:52:31

Jefferson Co.Tully ElementaryK - 5th DivisionToo Much MediaWe're kids and we admit it! Kids spend too much time on computers, phones, social media and gaming. The issue of kids spending too much time on the screen playing games, watching videos or on social media is important to us because we believe that during online school kids shouldn’t be spending all this time on screens. We have learned that kids spend way too much time online and that this is not good for them. We know that they have no choice for school and school work, but after that screen time should be limited because of all the negative things that we learned. So, we have created a website where kids and parents can go to get some ideas of other ways to spend their free time other than "on a screen". We hope that everyone who watches will come away with at least one idea for something new to try.4/5/2021 7:47:39

We shared the different & free programs kids have access to in order to learn how to code, they could be online activities or unplugged activities, as well as tools (toys) that could also be used. 4/6/2021 16:19:10

Jefferson Co.Blake ElementaryK - 5th DivisionBlakeBook: A Social Media Project Have you felt lonely or disconnected during the pandemic? BlakeBook is a project to help students stay connected during NTI. We wanted to create a safe "social media" site where students could talk about things they are interested in and can read what their friends have to say about the topic too. We created monthly questions for students to answer and then uploaded their responses on to the site. Our students and staff had fun participating by sharing their thoughts as well as some original artwork and personal photographs! Check out our site!4/6/2021 17:10:56

Pike Co.Mullins SchoolK - 5th DivisionPandemic PlaygroundMullins STLP wanted to develop a playground for our school that would fit into the guidelines for the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our team wanted to create a fun atmosphere that would allow students to be together outside in a safe and healthy way. We researched games that can be played outside and allow for social distance and space between participants. The games we came up with were cornhole, volleyball, connect four, and four square. We were also trying to find activities that did not require participating in a game. We came up with an outdoor movie center. We got an outdoor movie screen, projector and speakers We also have an xBox and Kinnect with games so this could also be an active center. .Our goal is to provide activities for Mullins School that continue long after the pandemic and COVID-19 are a distant memory.4/6/2021 21:08:40

Jackson Co.Tyner ElementaryK - 5th DivisionREaCH: Realize, Engage, and Create HopeREaCH (Realize Engage, and Create Hope) is a student group that promotes empathy and engages students to do good in their community. We have been actively engaged in our community trying to find ways to do good deeds to benefit those in need. Past year's activities include hosting a game night at our local nursing home, providing meals at a local homeless shelter, and hosting a Christmas celebration for our county's foster children. When COVID hit, we had to rethink our projects and find safe, socially distant ways to help our community. We feel like we succeeded in this with two special projects for this year. Since nursing homes were so hard hit during the pandemic, we decided this was a good place to start since they couldn't even see their families anymore. A few weeks before Christmas, we spread out, outside of the resident's windows and sang Christmas carols. The smiles on their faces told us we accomplished our goal. Our next project with REaCH was also aimed at the nursing home. The pandemic made the residents very lonely because they couldn't have visitors. We decided to use our green screen and iPad at school to create student read-alouds for the facility to play on the residents' tvs. This would do two things: bring joy to the residents and also give students practice reading! We have talked with the recreation director at the nursing home who has mentioned that she would like to share our dvd with surrounding facilities to share with their residents. We helped people and used technology to do it!4/6/2021 22:51:05

Jackson Co.Tyner ElementaryK - 5th DivisionExplore Our Backdoor"Explore Our Backdoor" is a project we started to increase tourism to Jackson County. We started this project last year by creating promo videos of special places in our county that people might want to visit. We created our first video, highlighting "Turkey Foot", a popular hiking and camping location. When the pandemic came and shut down our parks, we had to get creative. Since it wasn't safe for people to travel and everyone had to stay at home, we decided it was time to bring in virtual reality. VR is really popular right now and we thought this was the perfect way for us to take these beautiful locations to people in the safety of their own homes. People were sad and depressed and this could help make them happier. We also hoped that after they experienced it, it might make them want to come visit when it was safe. We asked Cynthia Warner from KET to do a virtual training with us to help us learn how to use the program CoSpaces. Once we were trained on CoSpaces, we used a 360 camera to get our images and then put them in CoSpaces to create the VR experience. We share these experiences through our Google Site and promote them through social media.Our first VR experience highlights "Lake Beulah", a local lake used for fishing and kayaking. We are planning to make more, including Flat Lick Falls and Turkey Foot.4/6/2021 23:04:49

pam.phipps@adair.kyschools.usPamelaPhippsK - 5th DivisionMain Purpose: Create a Louisville Zoo Field Trip for our Students to enjoy and the teachers to use as a research resource. ACES STLP students created a project that would support the learning in our school during the COVID epidemic-for both virtual and face to face students. The group decided to create virtual field trips. The Louisville Zoo was chosen as the most popular choice. With limited face to face interaction, the group received instruction about digital citizenship and citing our sources. They researched valid and and safe sites to learn about the animals and explored the Lousiville Zoo website extensively for new animal information. Google meet lessons included teacher led lessons and assigned Edpuzzle tasks to check for understanding. Students were given the freedom to chose any Lville Zoo animal to research and create a slide. They were also encouraged to create slides that would be motivating and engaging to 3rd graders. The slide expectations were to create an engaging slide that included an attractive background, at least two photographs of the animal, an informative video and 3-5 short animal facts. They decided later to add some animal jokes. Each had to create at least one slide, but many enjoyed the activity so much, they created more than two slides. All slides were created by the students invidually or as a group. Changes were suggested and voted on, such as the loveable trip guide, Louie the Lizard. There is a Google Form for all users to rate the virtual field trip. Currently, the group is planning to create another Kentucky virtual trip to Kentucky Down Under.
mark.harmon@ashland.kyschools.usMarkHarmon6th - 8th DivisionThe COVID 19 pandemic has had a major impact on our community, state, and nation. While we are unable to provide a cure, we are able to leverage technology to mitigate the impact that this virus has on our friends and family. Through digital design and animation software, 3D modeling and printing, and good old fashioned elbow grease, we have worked to make things better for those around us. We have made PPE when there was little to be had, we created animations to encourage young children to practice good hygiene, and we are now printing devices that will make our current reality a little safer and more comfortable.

jennifer.mize.smith@wku.eduShawnQuinn6th - 8th DivisionHave you ever gotten a package stolen from your porch? If so, you are among more than 23 million Americans who have had at least one package stolen from them! Porch piracy is a big problem, especially now during the pandemic when more people are shopping online. Our solution is the SMART MATT - a cordless, weight-sensored door mat that is activated when weight is placed on it. If not deactivated properly when the weight is removed, an alarm will sound and a notice will be sent to the homeowner's cell phone that the package has been stolen. We have analyzed competing products, researched technologies, solicited expert advice and shoppers' feedback, and created an infomercial for our product. With some promotion, we believe the mere presence of the SMART MATT may deter a potential thief. The SMART MATT can save people millions of dollars in merchandise and given them peace of mind while shopping online.

kaci.cohn@fayette.kyschools.usKaciCohn9th - 12th DivisionOur project is a VR tour of our school, that will also be published in a mode similar to Google Street View (so that VR goggles aren't required in order to view it). We created it to help students who are new to our school become familiar with the school building before actually going to school so they don't get lost. We were inspired to create this because we have 35 Oculus Go headsets at our school; several of the headsets with the tour on it will be available in our registrar's office for new students and parents to use. Also, having the tour available on a Google Street View type platform allows anyone with an internet-capable device to take a digital tour of our school.
kaci.cohn@fayette.kyschools.usKaciCohn9th - 12th DivisionGlobal Time Capsule is a web-based, interactive world map that will allow a user to ‘click’ on a specific country and gather information about it, from politics, to important foreign relations, to important events. In addition to this, GTC will also feature what we have called a “history slider”, where the user will be able to go “back in time”, and see this same information throughout different time periods. Our goal is to inform the general American population, which we have found to know little about the outside world, about foreign countries, and teach them to be well informed global citizens. This impact will be fully realized when we see others around us make use of GTC and use it to further their knowledge.

jeffrey.peake@fayette.kyschools.usJeffreyPeakeK - 5th DivisionThe challenge I plan to solve is to help kids get out of their comfort zone and try new things without being nervous by creating a morning show. The morning show will get kids out of their comfort zone because they will be on camera or a video so when people see the video they will feel more confident of doing things in front of people.
jeffrey.peake@fayette.kyschools.usJeffreyPeakeK - 5th DivisionThe challenge I plan to solve is to help our preschool kids learn to walk in a straight line while moving in the school. The Line Bot will help teach the preschool kids how to walk in a straight line as they follow the line bot down the hallway. It is a Lego duck on an Edison robot which has been programmed to follow a light held by the teacher. The kids will then follow the duck while learning to walk in a straight line like baby ducks.
pablo.alcala@fayette.kyschools.usPabloAlcala9th - 12th DivisionWith the pandemic requiring a Chromebook for each student, resources were spread thin. Many devices were at the end of their lifecycle and others were damaged or abused. Another casualty of the pandemic was lost internships and student schedules that had voids to fill. This project provided a way to help both problems. Students who missed out on internships because of Covid spend Work-Based learning hours repairing and restoring Chromebooks for the school. They received the hands-on experience of fixing hardware and troubleshooting issues for students and extending the resources of our technology.
pablo.alcala@fayette.kyschools.usPabloAlcala9th - 12th DivisionFrederick Douglass students edit video content for the Lexington Herald-Leader. Due to the Herald-Leader being in quarantine and without a newsroom, they are unable to offer internships to students this school year. Students were determined to still find a way to help the photo/video staff of our local paper and get real-world experience. Three photographers and their editor worked with students who were tasked with editing videos to accompany restaurant articles for the LexGo section. The first two videos should be published in April.
kim.overstreet@fayette.kyschools.usKimOverstreet9th - 12th DivisionDuring this pandemic, students have been forced to face their screens for school. The lack of meeting fellow teachers and peers face to face puts a great strain on student morale and lead to becoming frustrated. Our goal is to reinvigorate the students by presenting a video that consists of people giving out words of encouragement to make other students feel happy.
kim.overstreet@fayette.kyschools.usKimOverstreet9th - 12th DivisionThe project will be a podcast where we address a variety of topics, such as current events, fandoms, and more by talking with each other and guest speakers such as other students and teachers. This will provide a medium for students to interact with each other, which will combat and decrease student isolation and provide a sense of community.
julie.moore@fayette.kyschools.usJulieMoore6th - 8th Division“Spreading Joy Through the Arts” is a project designed to bring JOY to the community-- especially to the elders and sick in our community! During the pandemic, elderly populations were isolated in both elder care facilities and at home-- isolated from their children and grandchildren in fear of COVID-19 transmission. The students of SCAPA created individual videos of themselves showcasing their incredible artsy talent to not only show the world what children are capable of doing, but also to inspire elders and spread joy. Individual videos were collected from students and compiled into a great big video that was shared with elders that live in our neighborhoods as well as residents of the Ronald McDonald House.
julie.moore@fayette.kyschools.usJulieMoore6th - 8th DivisionIn this project developed by the students of SCAPA Bluegrass, we created a safe vlogging platform where middle schoolers can post videos of themselves showcasing their incredible talent!

justin.holbrook@floyd.kyschools.usJustinHolbrook6th - 8th DivisionOur project, STEM SQUAD allows our team to get STEM material into all classrooms in our school. We keep inventory of our equipment and we check out not only materials but teachers can schedule a stem squad member to visit their classroom. The STEM SQUAD member can teach a lesson or just be there to assist in using the equipment. Our website is eventually going to have a video that explains all of our equipment and how to videos on how to use it.
alisa.howell@floyd.kyschools.usAlisaHowellK - 5th DivisionOur project is to help ALL of our teachers and students get familiar with and utilize all the STEM equipment that our school has to offer. We keep up with the inventory and have a digital sign out sheet for our materials. We can also go into the classrooms to assist with using the STEM equipment or to teach a lesson. Our website will eventually house virtual lessons that the teachers can use to help them with how to use the materials or for lesson ideas.
arlene.crabtree@frankfort.kyschools.usArleneCrabtree9th - 12th DivisionLet's Get Engaged is a study that assessed the engagement and sense of belonging within FHS students through digital surveys surrounding the House Games program! House Games was created and developed by myself (Ella A.) and Lilia S. as a Superintendent's Passion Project. What is House Games? It is the sorting of Frankfort High Students into one of four Houses (similar to Harry Potter Houses) randomly. The Houses consist of members from all grades, 9-12, sorted randomly to help with student engagement in our school. House Games were centered around academic excellence, identity, leadership, and service within the community. The students compete against other Houses in a competitive manner to earn House points through different activities. Points are logged using Google Forms. Students and Staff submit proof (picture of activity) and ask to be awarded points for the activity they completed. House Presidents approve points. We decided to do the Let's Get Engaged! project to see if our efforts were effective in its purpose. We are using the data to improve House Games and hope to add this program to the many traditions Frankfort High School already has even after Lilia and I have graduated.
aaron.west@graves.kyschools.usAaronWest6th - 8th DivisionThe purpose of The Kingdom Scroll is to provide an alternate website for the students of Central Elementary that is more student oriented. The current district provided website does not have many, if any features that a child would be interested in. The team, with input from their fellow students, created a website that can benefit all the students, from Kindergarten to 6th grade. Feel free to check out the website for yourself at: http://bit.ly/3fuyEAv
kristen.chambers@graves.kyschools.usKristenChambersK - 5th DivisionOur project is about one central problem that we noticed in the 3d printing community. Most people don't know how to 3d print! We decided that the best way to tell people about it was to make a website and have videos on the website telling people what they need to do. Our project website we created can be found here: sites.google.com/stu.graves.kyschools.us/stlp3dprinting/home
kristen.chambers@graves.kyschools.usKristenChambersK - 5th DivisionOur STLP project is an online lost and found and help desk. We have made a website to try to help students connect with their lost items and help students figure out their Chromebooks and be able to fix simple mistakes. We have linked videos to our help desk of videos to teach you how to fix simple mistakes with the Chromebook. We are also in the process of making our own videos to teach students how to get on school websites. This is what our STLP project is all about!

jared.ward@jackson.kyschools.usJaredWardK - 5th DivisionOur team of elementary school students created a Google site all about how kids can protect themselves from Covid 19. They made the decision to create this site after seeing our numbers go up dramatically in our county. After being in "the red" for so long, our students wanted to do their part to help out. The site is mostly a hub for the videos they produced about specific topics to reduce the spread of the disease. We hope you enjoy our efforts.
ashley.judd@jackson.kyschools.usAshleyJuddK - 5th Division"Explore Our Backdoor" is a project we started to increase tourism to Jackson County. We started this project last year by creating promo videos of special places in our county that people might want to visit. We created our first video, highlighting "Turkey Foot", a popular hiking and camping location. When the pandemic came and shut down our parks, we had to get creative. Since it wasn't safe for people to travel and everyone had to stay at home, we decided it was time to bring in virtual reality. VR is really popular right now and we thought this was the perfect way for us to take these beautiful locations to people in the safety of their own homes. People were sad and depressed and this could help make them happier. We also hoped that after they experienced it, it might make them want to come visit when it was safe. We asked Cynthia Warner from KET to do a virtual training with us to help us learn how to use the program CoSpaces. Once we were trained on CoSpaces, we used a 360 camera to get our images and then put them in CoSpaces to create the VR experience. We share these experiences through our Google Site and promote them through social media. Our first VR experience highlights "Lake Beulah", a local lake used for fishing and kayaking. We are planning to make more, including Flat Lick Falls and Turkey Foot.
ashley.judd@jackson.kyschools.usAshleyJuddK - 5th DivisionREaCH (Realize Engage, and Create Hope) is a student group that promotes empathy and engages students to do good in their community. We have been actively engaged in our community trying to find ways to do good deeds to benefit those in need. Past year's activities include hosting a game night at our local nursing home, providing meals at a local homeless shelter, and hosting a Christmas celebration for our county's foster children. When COVID hit, we had to rethink our projects and find safe, socially distant ways to help our community. We feel like we succeeded in this with two special projects for this year. Since nursing homes were so hard hit during the pandemic, we decided this was a good place to start since they couldn't even see their families anymore. A few weeks before Christmas, we spread out, outside of the resident's windows and sang Christmas carols. The smiles on their faces told us we accomplished our goal. Our next project with REaCH was also aimed at the nursing home. The pandemic made the residents very lonely because they couldn't have visitors. We decided to use our green screen and iPad at school to create student read-alouds for the facility to play on the residents' tvs. This would do two things: bring joy to the residents and also give students practice reading! We have talked with the recreation director at the nursing home who has mentioned that she would like to share our dvd with surrounding facilities to share with their residents. We helped people and used technology to do it!
heather.kirkman@jefferson.kyschools.usHeatherKirkmanK - 5th DivisionOur purpose was to get our students to use the Gale database. It’s the best research tool because it has cited correct information. The people in our school who benefit are the students, families, and teachers. When kids have to do a research paper, they will already know where to get good information. We are teaching students to use the database in 5 easy steps and helping them school become better digital citizens. We used Google slides, Screencastify, and Flipgrid to produce it. We understand that judges will access the product, but please do not put it on the STLP website or social media, since it was made for our school and contains our database password.
stephen.beck@jefferson.kyschools.usStephenBeckK - 5th DivisionStudents developed a website to help their peers with the JCPS Digital Backpack.

cathy.jackson@jefferson.kyschools.usCathyJacksonK - 5th DivisionWe are worried about how much time students are spending on the internet and want to help them stay safe. During NTI, students have 24/7 access to the internet and most have their own computers. It is important, as technology leaders at our school, that we help and teach them tips for staying safe. We want to share with them age appropriate apps they can use, too. We feel this is important not only for Bowen students, but for students in Kentucky and across the United States during virtual learning.
cathy.jackson@jefferson.kyschools.usCathyJacksonK - 5th DivisionOnce we return to face-to-face instruction, we plan on teaching our 5th grade classmates about how to program the Sphero BOLTs. Our bigger goal is to go into all of the classrooms and teach simple codes to all of our classes, kindergarten through 4th grade! We have also teamed up with our ECE Implementation Coach, Mrs. Todd. Students have a Social Emotional needs will get to come to the Digital Learning Lab and spend time programming the BOLTs. This will give them time and space away from what is causing them to be emotional. We hope that this activity will be a calming experience for them. We can wait to get back to school and share what we have learned!

mary.sithu@jefferson.kyschools.usMarySithu6th - 8th DivisionThere are 8000 English Language Learners (ELL) in JCPS. Parents who are not fluent in English find it hard to guide their children with school-work. Since Conway is a Verizon Innovative Learning School, every teacher and student has an iPad. The Tech Hub team includes students from STLP club and AP students from 7th and 8th grade. In this extensive project, we decided to create videos on using Google Apps, general use of iPad and ELL videos on Spanish and Somali. The Google Apps and iPad were created on iPad but the Chromebook was used for ELL videos. We were able to add all these videos to a Google Site for students and parents to access this. This website was also added to our School Website. This is an excellent resource for teachers, parents and students. This will be an on going work of our Tech Hub Team that will work on adding more languages and more videos.
donna.johnson2@jefferson.kyschools.usDonnaJohnsonK - 5th DivisionOur team of 4th and 5th grade students created a website where our school community can find tips and helpful resources to navigate NTI. All content was created by the students and compiled on the attached website.

julie.simms@jefferson.kyschools.usJulieSimmsK - 5th DivisionOur students decided that they wanted to do something that would help reduce Covid-19 in our community because it was hindering our ability to return to in-person learning at school. They decided to create a website and Public Service Announcements giving people instructions on how to wear their masks properly, wash their hands correctly and social distance. They shared their videos and website on our school social media pages so that our community would be able to read their tips about helping to prevent Covid-19. They did this project with the hope that our community spread would reduce enough that we would be able to return to in-person school.

kasey.bishop@jefferson.kyschools.usKaseyBishopK - 5th DivisionFor our project, we created a Google Site to be used by teachers at our school to help them learn more about the JCPS Digital Backpack. The JCPS backpack is like a digital time capsule. You can use this in grades K-12. JCPS also uses it for something we call “Backpack Defense''. Backpack Defense can be used to determine if a student should be promoted to the next grade. Backpack Defenses happen at the end of the 5th, 8th, and 12th grades. This is an easy way to get all the things needed, as well as additional library resources. We have made this to show beginners how to use the JCPS digital Backpack.

paula.wolf@jefferson.kyschools.usPaulaWolfK - 5th DivisionCoding? What is coding? These are questions many of the students at Middletown Elementary asked when hearing about Girls Who Code. How could we show and tell our peers what we do at Girls Who Code? Why not introduce the world of coding during HOUR OF CODE, and that is exactly what we did. We shared the different & free programs kids have access to in order to learn how to code, they could be online activities or unplugged activities, as well as tools (toys) that could also be used.
paula.wolf@jefferson.kyschools.usPaulaWolfK - 5th DivisionCOVID-19 has everyone feeling isolated and disconnected! Our STLP group thought what better way to bring kiddos together than with some friendly competition, and who doesn't like Minecraft?

kristina.bloch@jefferson.kyschools.usKristinaBlochK - 5th DivisionWe looked around our school and community and realized there was a need to have and share books that represent our multicultural world. Our principal asked us to create a way to share these books to staff and students and we worked on a plan. We decided to use Google Tools to vote, create and review multicultural books and then to share it with teachers and then students. All of 4th and 5th grade worked on the reviews and weighed in on the project and then the leadership team volunteers met weekly to work the plan. We know that finding and making diversity accessible helps to make our world a better place and we are happy to share our website.

molly.adams@jefferson.kyschools.usMollyAdamsK - 5th DivisionWe're kids and we admit it! Kids spend too much time on computers, phones, social media and gaming. The issue of kids spending too much time on the screen playing games, watching videos or on social media is important to us because we believe that during online school kids shouldn’t be spending all this time on screens. We have learned that kids spend way too much time online and that this is not good for them. We know that they have no choice for school and school work, but after that screen time should be limited because of all the negative things that we learned. So, we have created a website where kids and parents can go to get some ideas of other ways to spend their free time other than "on a screen". We hope that everyone who watches will come away with at least one idea for something new to try.
jenny.cotton@jefferson.kyschools.usJennyCotton9th - 12th DivisionStudent wanted people to understand facts about Covid-19 in our community and with the return to school guidance in staying safe.
jenny.cotton@jefferson.kyschools.usJennyCotton9th - 12th DivisionStudents seeing so many students struggling using google app and talking with teachers what they have to help students with that takes away from the instructional time. So they created a slide show as a resource for students to use to help.
jenny.cotton@jefferson.kyschools.usJennyCotton9th - 12th DivisionStudent saw the need that teens are having problems get a job, so they researched and talked to people to find out what do teens need to know.
Debra.robinson@jefferson.kyschools.usDebraRobinson9th - 12th DivisionThe main purpose of our project was to give students real world experience with business partners. With the numerous employees working from home and students not having the opportunities for externships and internships, the goal was to find a way to provide them the opportunity to work with professionals in the field of their pathway, Web Design. This was a great experience that the business partners and students enjoyed. It provided the students with a reinforcement of what they had learned in the classroom and gave them more learning experiences from someone other than a classroom teacher. Thank you Leap Group
alisha.henry@jefferson.kyschools.usAlishaHenryK - 5th DivisionWatterson Way is a website where students create resources and videos for teachers to share what other technology (app/programs) teachers are using and how. The students also have included ideas on student choice activities and different ways to demonstrate learning.
alisha.henry@jefferson.kyschools.usAlishaHenryK - 5th DivisionWES "Yeah" is a communication tool for students during Covid, as well as other times when we cannot get together. The idea behind it being that kids miss talking with and having fun with their peers. The students came up with several ways to safely interact and chat virtually with others, since most of their interaction on meets is about school work and only their classmates. The students stressed how much they miss this and how it would help the feel connected again.
kari.corsi@jefferson.kyschools.usKariCorsiK - 5th DivisionWe created a tech-help website to help address the needs of our students and staff during NTI.

kanda.boyd@lyon.kyschools.usKandaBoydK - 5th DivisionThis is a news cast that keeps our school informed of what is going on daily.
jason.hardin@eku.eduJasonHardin6th - 8th DivisionPets have always been an important part of our lives, but especially during the COVID quarantines start last Spring. Spending more time with our pets has been good for the pets, but it's also been an important part of our mental health. With that in mind, we wanted to take the skills our 6th grade Digital Art students were learning and combine that with a good cause in our local humane society. Our teachers, students, and families were encouraged to submit a digital picture of their pets to our artists along with a $10 fee to the Humane Society Club at our school. Those pics would be sketches in styles ranging from realistic to abstract, cartoon to watercolor. All of the funds raised through the club would be given to the local humane society, and our clients would enjoy a digital copy of their sketched pet. This non-profit entrepreneurial venture is also categorized as a community service.
mechelle.morgan@murray.kyschools.usMechelleMorgan6th - 8th DivisionThe news had been very depressing lately with Covid, and people are having shorter time in their schedules and much shorter attention spans. As well as, the lack of a fun news program meant for grades 4-8. So we made Weekly 2 Minute News! Weekly 2 Minute News is a fun news program meant for grades 4-8. It comes out every Monday and is 2 minutes long. With book suggestions, New science updates, Holidays, and things happening around our school!
mechelle.morgan@murray.kyschools.usMechelleMorgan6th - 8th DivisionA Google Site was designed to give students a place to go where they can find funny and motivating posts for students to help them cope during the Covid-19 Pandemic.

donna.mcghee@nelson.kyschools.usDonnaMcGheeK - 5th DivisionOur STLP Community Service Project, "VIRTUALLY THERE" allows community members, families, and students to tour our school virtually and safely - during the current COVID-19 restrictions. We learned how to take 360 degree pictures and create a virtual tour that highlights what our school looks like, our school's story, and what FHES has to offer. Our virtual tour is publicly available on our school's website, facebook, and youtube channel.
bonnie.stacey@newport.kyschools.usBonnieStacey9th - 12th DivisionCommunication is very important in a school district as it acts as a bridge for strong student, family and community partnerships. Students, families, community and business partners need to be informed as to what is going on with the schools. The pandemic and virtual environment have made good communication much more difficult. The COVID-19 pandemic has changed our means of communication with students and families as we have lost that daily in person connection. So the question was, “How can STLP students, through technology, help solve this issue?” The Newport High School 2020-21 STLP Project, Wildcat News Connect, challenged the STLP students to help solve the communication issue with two platforms, both using technology. A weekly Student Produced News Video posted on Social Media and School/District Websites and a District Digital Newsletter that was emailed to all families and all community business contacts as well as posted on social Media and the Website Both have proven to be very successful as means to getting information out about the schools.

kelly.klausing@owensboro.kyschools.usKellyKlausingK - 5th DivisionThis project is very important for our community. We see the need first had throughout our Estes community of people in need. We are dedicated to using our talents with technology platforms to raise money to donate to shelters in need. No one should have to go hungry or be without daily necessities. Our plan is to provide technology help to staff, parents, and students for a $5 donation which we will give to a local shelter. We hope you understand the importance as much as we do. -Sophia and Skylar-
kelly.klausing@owensboro.kyschools.usKellyKlausingK - 5th DivisionThe purpose of our project is to provide tutoring services to girls that attend Girls Inc. Instead of having families pay money for these services we are asking for school supply donations. We know first hand that right now many students and parents are under stress and unsure about online school and in person school. Also getting their child's school work completed and checked. So this is why we feel that like this would be a great opportunity for everyone involved.

jeanne.caudill@pike.kyschools.usJeanneCaudillK - 5th DivisionMullins STLP wanted to develop a playground for our school that would fit into the guidelines for the COVID-19 Pandemic. Our team wanted to create a fun atmosphere that would allow students to be together outside in a safe and healthy way. We researched games that can be played outside and allow for social distance and space between participants. The games we came up with were cornhole, volleyball, connect four, and four square. We were also trying to find activities that did not require participating in a game. We came up with an outdoor movie center. We got an outdoor movie screen, projector and speakers We also have an xBox and Kinnect with games so this could also be an active center. .Our goal is to provide activities for Mullins School that continue long after the pandemic and COVID-19 are a distant memory.
crystal.neal@powell.kyschools.usCrystalNeal6th - 8th DivisionIn this project, titled Get Involved!, the group used their Girls Who Code partnership to create Scratch animations and a website focused on ways that other students could get involved in school or community activities that they may have never considered before. COVID caused them to shift to ways students could still stay busy, involved, and still separated. They presented their animations to small groups, stressed the importance of being involved and active, and surveyed the students for impact.

missy.murray@russellind.kyschools.usMissyMurray6th - 8th DivisionWe wanted to make an educational game for kids. We wanted to do this so that more kids would enjoy learning and school. We know that lots of kids across the country either drop out of school, don't graduate, or don't go to college. We want more people to go to college so that we will have less poor people and homeless people.
shane.jordan@russellind.kyschools.usShaneJordanK - 5th DivisionOur STLP Community Service Project is Dog Water Fountains. We created homemade dog fountains using a how-to video we found online (we emailed the video creator for permission to use in our project!). We also created our own STLP logo to stick on our fountains. Next, we communicated our idea with a local mayor and judge executive. These officials met with us and allowed us to place our dog fountains in two local dog parks. We placed a QR code survey poster that links to a Google Form near the fountains to see how often the fountains are used. The mayor and judge executive are also placing info about our project on their social media pages. We really like dogs, and we believe they should stay hydrated!

samuel.northern@simpson.kyschools.usSamNorthernK - 5th DivisionThe STLP team at Simpson Elementary School consists of 3rd grade students. The team is managing a trail cam on school property. The trail cam was acquired through a donation from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. The project used a trail camera to capture media of wild animals behind the school building. We collected and curated the footage in Google Drive. We created videos of the different animals seen as well as worksheets and games. Videos and other information about animals, habitats, and conservation were uploaded to a Google Site. The more people know about animal habitats, the more likely they are to care about protecting their homes.
