Are you familiar with the STEM, or STEAM, approach to teaching? It aims to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics. It steps away from the traditional textbook-only, single-subject approach to show the relationships among these areas.
Science and math have practical applications by bringing in engineering and technology. The arts, including music, are based on the science of light and color as well as sound, and much more. This broad-based approach will reach more students with all their different ranges of strengths.
Every week we will be presenting a flavor of the festival, opportunities for you to be part of it, and a sample of recent technology we offered. In addition, we will suggest some STEM events happening in this area.
Another Great Success at our Volunteer Recognition Event!
Thank you to all the presenters and volunteers who came , and we also appreciate the company of Massachusetts Representative Tackey Chan who joined us, too.
A good time was had by all. Each of the participants shared their experience from this past April and you could sense eagerness to be part of the next South Shore Science Festival — our 4th — in 2018. Getting to know each other this way is not only a positive thing for the festival itself, it’s fun.
