A culmination of a year’s worth of learning, diligence and creativity is right around the corner. Families are invited to check out exciting competitions, new attractions and fun activities at the fourth annual STEAMposium, starting at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, April 28, at the Curtis Culwell Center.
“This is certainly a one-of-a-kind event that still remains the largest of its kind in the region,” said STEM Coordinator Melissa Luna. “Families can build, create, compete and have fun at this celebration and demonstration of GISD’s commitment to a culture of ‘Students and Teachers Engaging Active Minds,’ or STEAM.”
Students in prekindergarten through 12th grade will showcase skills and projects developed during the year. Attendees will see students compete in STEAM-driven challenges such as engineering, science fair, VEX Robotics, fine arts and coding. New interactive stations include a virtual reality playground, Bricks & Minifigs Derby Race, STEAM Goose Chase Digital Scavenger Hunt, life-size chess and more.
Although the funfest is a one-day experience, Luna believes it can make a deeper impact.
“We have reached out to involve families in discovering STEAM and how it applies to our lives. Through family fun interactives, we demonstrate and expand at-home activities to show parents how they can encourage students outside of school.”
