STEAM Saturday

STEAM Saturday is an exciting opportunity for our students in grades K to 8 to explore, discover, and learn outside the traditional classroom and be inspired to uncover their passion, gain motivation, and become lifelong learners. Across the Saturdays, students will engage in hands-on, interactive, and fun learning activities in a diverse selection of topics in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math.
