University Liggett School announces second-annual community STEAM Faire
University Liggett School is pleased to announce the school’s second-annual Community STEAM Faire on from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Saturday, November 4 at ULS’s Boll Campus Center.
STEAM, an approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking, is an integral part of a University Liggett School education. The objective of this event is to give children of all ages a forum for experiencing STEAM through more than 20 DIY make-and-take booths and live science demonstrations.
“STEAM is an integrative approach that encourages different ways of thinking as it develops a range of important skills. Investigating STEAM with children of all ages introduces them to an endless world of possibilities,” said Michael Medvinsky, University Liggett School’s Dean of Pedagogy and Innovation.
“We are passionate about creating real-world applications to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics. We are very excited to gather such an engaging group of thinkers, makers, tinkerers, and innovators who all have designed hands-on experiences for the community to enjoy at our second annual STEAM Faire.”
The Community STEAM Faire is free and open to the public.
