Students get hands-on learning during STEAM exploration activities
Grinding gears and fizzing lava lamps were some of the noises that could be heard from the experiments being held for STEAM at University high school.
STEAM is part of Remake Learning Days in West Virginia. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art and math. STEAM helps teach kids different aspects of science how they work together and apply to the world around them.
"We are doing engineering. We have robotics that will becoming out here in a few minutes. We have art. They are painting the flower pots and sun catchers. We have math which is involved in every aspect of what we are doing here. We are doing plant science, we are doing chemicals, we are doing it all. Excited about STEAM and how its messy fun, " said Jeanne Oiler, Engineering and Tech IT teacher.
Some of the science experiments included making slime, lava lamps, exploding glitter and photosynthesis.
