Innovation Clubs & Exposition
Pasadena Unified School District is pleased to announce a unique learning experience for students in our Gifted and Talented Education program. GATE students at each of our elementary and middle school campuses have the opportunity to join the Innovation Club where they will work in teams to complete a variety of design challenges.
Ultimately, participating students will be prepared for the PUSD Innovation Exposition – our district’s innovative alternative to the typical science fair. The Innovation Exposition is much more than a science fair – it enables students to explore interests and talents by offering five elective categories from which students can choose: Invention, Science Fiction, Environmental Innovation, Engineering (Reverse), and Scientific Inquiry. For more information about PUSD’s Annual Innovation Exposition, please visit the Innovation Exposition website.
