The STEAM-a-Thon is an exciting and new program that introduces students from Kindergarten to eighth grade to growing fields so that they can understand the countless benefits that lie from studying the diverse topics that are part of STEAM. By providing three different, yet related challenges, the students are able to gain first-hand experience with challenges that many professionals in the STEAM field face today. From building a car to advertising a solution to global warming, the STEAM-a-Thon introduces a new environment to students, where they will need to think outside of the box multiple times. Through the competition, students will also be able to master a few additional beneficial skills, such as public speaking and presentation skills that will become essential once they enter the STEAM field. Any student who wants an opportunity to explore the STEAM field is welcome to participate in the STEAM-a-Thon!
