STEAM-A-Palooza at Trace Crossings
I had the wonderful opportunity to volunteer Friday at Trace for their STEAM-A-Palooza. This fun-filled event was organized by Dana Joyner and Amanda Stone with the help of a committee of teachers and Samford students. The event was amazing! Students from grades K-4 were invited to spend a Friday evening exploring all types of STEAM activities including: creating and testing paper airplanes, creating structures and sculptures with cardboard boxes, creating art work with paint and recycled objects, flying a drone, and constructing with Rigamajigs. The entire night's theme was on the book, Rosie Revere, Engineer, simple machines such as rivets, flight, and creating. To see more pictures, follow me on Twitter at @carpese.
