STEAM Day at Bloomfield Elementary School provided a variety of opportunities for students to “STEAM” into the future by exploring many forms of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math.
The event, March 28, was envisioned as an annual and growing event for the school, according to Principal Leah Hardin.
“BES students had a great experience at our first STEAM day,” said Hardin. “They learned aspects of cooking, art, and the Civil War. We are looking forward to perfecting this for our kids to showcase robotics, engineering concepts, as well as technology. We believe that learning 21st century skills will help prepare our kids for the future.”
Numerous area practitioners of jobs and careers that rely on expertise in those key subject areas were on hand throughout the day to show children the practical aspects of the subjects they are learning about.
As predicted by event organizer, music teacher Darrell Parks, STEAM Day was not a “sit and watch day,” but rather, offered many hands-on learning activities.
