Boston K-8 held its inaugural STEAM night recently. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art + Design and Math. The event was an overwhelming success with more than 200 participants. Over 25 percent of students completed 10 of the 24 stations with several more completing more than 20 stations.
Teachers and community members demonstrated many exciting experiments and explained how they pertain to the STEAM pathway.
"It was truly an amazing event," said Ruth Baldivia, Boston’s Principal. “The collaboration between our liaisons, teachers, community members and students and families makes me proud to be a part of Boston.”
Special thanks to our many community partners for making this event such a huge success: MAD Science, Aurora Central High School's Aurora LIGHTS Program, Pickens Technical College, Downtown Aurora Visual Arts (DAVA), Gateway High School's International Association for Astronomical Studies (IAAS) and Innovation Hyperlab, Aurora Public Schools Federal Credit Union, Aurora Public Schools' Post-Secondary and Workforce Readiness Team and the Aurora Community Connection & Family Resource Center.
Also, thanks to Big Daddy’s Pizza and TickleBelly desserts for helping with the food!
