STEAM Expo 2017

 Join the Fun! It’s FREE!

Teachers and administrators, please encourage ALL your students to either participate or attend.
(High School Teachers, please encourage your students to look into the STEAM scholarship as well.)

STEAM EXPO (science, technology, engineering, art, math) is an event designed to encourage the interaction and collaboration between our Great Falls Public School students and community professionals. The purpose is to apply knowledge and understanding of science, technology, engineering, art, and math to conduct in-depth “real-world” investigations. The process will include mentorships, demonstrations of classroom science explorations, and extensions of the inquiry process posed in student note-booking journals. The exposition itself will offer a venue for students to demonstrate the results of their STEAM studies, professionals to show how STEAM is used to better our communities, and spectators to participate in hands-on experiments. The STEAM EXPO event will connect our schools to the community, our students to professionals, and generate interest and excitement for science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics. 

 
Participants and public will interact with science, technology, engineering, art, and math projects.
Approximately 40 community groups will also share information and provide hands-on activities!

Hope to see you as well at the STEAM EXPO 2017 to see the amazing inquiry work that will be presented by GFPS K-12 students.
