DeKalb Schools fair will showcase tech savvy students

DeKalb County School District students are expected to show off their tech savvy at the district’s 2019 technology fair.

The fair is scheduled for Jan. 26 at Elizabeth Andrews High School, inside district headquarters at 1701 Mountain Industrial Blvd in Stone Mountain. The 2019 theme is “Digital Dreamers Shine.” The fair will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Registration is required to participate.

According to district officials, the DeKalb County School District Technology Fair has allowed students since 2001 to present projects on animation, audio production, digital game design and more. Last year, student projects included voice-activated robots and a video game combating bullying.

The fair also will feature “Techpolooza,” where students, teachers and community members can try out various tools and activities.
Tech Fair winners would compete in the 2019 Georgia State Tech Fair, at Middle Georgia State University in Macon on March 9.
