She also really loved learning about Amelia Earhart, another fun project that Mr. Farrior assigned. 

“He makes learning fun, even while I’m at home,” she told the camera in her Expo 2021 submission, explaining why she wanted to celebrate Mr. Farrior.

One of the last major events before the COVID-19 pandemic forced schools to close, last year’s Expo brought together Northwest ISD students, staff and community members to showcase innovative learning and achievement across the district.

District leaders like Cara Carter, executive director of technology, wanted to make sure that tradition continued with Expo 2021

“We look forward to Expo every year,” she said. “It’s one huge celebration of the learning that takes place in our district, and the pandemic hasn’t slowed that down. Celebrating that learning is more important now than it has ever been before.”

Northwest ISD Expo 2021 is a celebration of academic growth, innovative teachers and learning experiences.

Students can submit a short video to showcase, share and celebrate the work or growth they are proud of throughout the month of February on the NISD Expo website. They can choose from topics including academic growth, innovative teachers and learning experiences. 

Submissions will be reviewed by a campus-based committee, and approved videos will be showcased on the Expo website. Visit the Expo website from March 8 to 12 for a weeklong celebration highlighting submissions. 

Northwest ISD Expo asks students to submit videos via Flipgrid to share their learning celebrations.

“Technology has kept us connected through the uncertainty of the past year,” Carter said. Our students and teachers have risen to the challenge and made great things happen in their remote classrooms, as well as their physical ones. We can’t wait to celebrate those achievements through Expo 2021.”
