Team Event Strategy:
Are you updating your websites and adding images from your meetings and events? Maybe add a quick blog or video about your progress. Is your social media (correctly) linked on your website and is your team and school clearly identified? Challenge yourself to have someone from your team update something on your site once a week!
Final project Deadline: May 5th is the deadline to turn in your final website and an end-of-year video. All materials - including guidelines and rubrics are found on our Curriculum page.
