Through the efforts of many, the first STEAM Expo was launched with resounding success.
SRDS hosted its first ever STEAM Expo featuring the sixth grade digital literacy student projects, the middle school scratch projects, the fifth grade Egypt and Greek projects, upper school computer science programs and English novel class projects. Students were on hand near their project displays to offer full explanations about everything from "Ice Cream Tic Tac Toe" to Egyptian models, sports simulators, a "Bunny Bot" and much more! The innovation and creativity in the students' projects and presentations was very impressive and on full display for the rest of the student body, parents, friends and faculty/staff to see.
This was a pilot and was definitely the first of many annual expo events going forward. Thanks to Laura Hollis who partnered with Computer Science & Math teacher, Virginia Bluth, as well as five of her CS students: Ben Herman, Samantha Cohen, Stephen Savas, Adam Hibbert and Danielle Rizzuto who shared the work and many willing parent volunteers who helped to made this a successful and informative experience for all!
