In its seventh year, New Canaan Public Schools' Tech Night is once again bringing together students and technology at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 26, at New Canaan High School.

This year's event includes about 40 to 50 extracurricular projects created outside of the classroom by students from kindergarten to grade 12 and curricular uses of technology within the schools. Students and educators will showcase how technology enhances and encourages learning. Attendees will also have the opportunity to view a showing in the high school planetarium.

Students go through a formal application process where they submit their idea for a project, describe its use of technology and provide a reason for sharing their idea. Each application is reviewed by a committee of faculty and staff, which then provide the students the opportunity to teach and inspire others with their ideas and creations.

Some of this year's submissions include: "Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome App," "Robotic Arm," "Hydroponics," "Hansel and Gretel Claymation" and "Books in the Blogosphere."

There is a snow date of Thursday, Feb. 28.
