The goal of our ‘full STEAM ahead’ event is to ignite curiosity in STEM and the Arts.
Communication, collaboration, creativity, and critical thinking are important skills to develop for 21st-century careers. At Hernandez Middle School (HMS), all students work on developing these skills throughout their classes. At the STEAM event, participants will engage in activities related to one of the 5C’s that shows connections between STEM and the Arts. Possible sessions include: visualizing sound via an oscilloscope, creating your own phonograph, and sensing interference patterns via sound.
*This event is closed to the general public and is only open to HMS families. If you’d like to volunteer and get involved, please click the link above!
