On Tuesday, May 23rd, a group of Bais Yaakov High School STEM students traveled to American Dream Mall in New Jersey to participate in the CIJE Annual Innovation Day. Since January, students from grades 10 through 12 worked in groups to build capstone projects featuring a new innovation that they designed, engineered, and coded themselves. They also conducted market research and put together pitches to sell their products. At Innovation Day, the groups presented their pitches to an audience of fellow students and adult judges. There were 1200+ students and 450 innovation projects.
Aside from the pitches, the students were able to enjoy the shops and amusement park at the mall, and participate in the CIJE award ceremony at the end.
