Steam Expo March 30th 2017

on March 31, 2017
Full STEAM Ahead
Sharon Springs Central School’s 2nd Annual STEAM Expo attracted more than twice the amount of student presenters and more than quadruple the amount of those who attended last year’s event. The expo included over 100 student presenters engaging an authentic audience with the wonders of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM). In a tech-rich, interactive environment students showcased work that included individual class projects, robotics demonstrations, a simulation of a changing community, student/teacher produced films, musical performances, handmade 3D models, magic, artifacts from SSCS’s musical, and more. Additionally, participants engaged in activities like flying drones, making slime and silly putty, and utilizing green screen technology. SSCS parents, educators, students, and community members mingled throughout the three hour event, celebrating the creative, skillful, and knowledgeable work of students.

Sponsored by RL Parsons, Sterling Insurance, the Sharon Springs Central School’s Teachers Association, and donations from individual teachers, each presenter was given a purple and white tee shirt. The rich, symbolic design on the shirt was thought of by individuals in the poster club and created by poster club adviser and K – 12 art teacher Ms. Sue Furturko. Thanks to the generosity of Sharon Tavern, The Log House, Justine’s, and individual teachers, all in attendance were offered fresh pizza during a short intermission. Additionally, during the intermission, Mrs. Jen Field organized the presentation of a SSCS Odyssey of the Mind team that is heading off to a state competing in April after qualifying at the regional competition earlier in March. As the event resumed, more and more people came to see what the inspired and inspiring students at SSCS were showing at this year’s STEAM Expo. SSCS students and teachers are already talking about next year’s STEAM Expo!
