Around Town | Annual STEAM Expo at Mitchell Community School Draws Hundreds
The Sulphur Springs School District invited students, parents and community members to see student work from all over the district at the STEAM expo at Mitchell Community School on Tuesday night.
The first annual expo drew a crowd of hundreds to Mitchell’s auditorium where attendees got to participate in live demonstrations, play video games coded by fifth graders and see how kindergarteners are able to solve real-world problems.
“I’m just so proud to be here,” said Dawn Hines, teacher in the Sulphur Springs School District. “It has to do with our kids and their potential and how much they can do if we just get out of their way.”
STEAM, or science, technology, engineering, art and math program, allows students the opportunity to use problem solving techniques in order to learn.
“What we are hoping, of course, is that through the love of learning science thats going on, our children will continue in the field of math and science,” said Superintendent Catherine Kawaguchi.
