BFA’s Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) Expo gets better and better each year! The purpose of the event is to expose our K-8 students to the subjects of science, technology, engineering, arts and math in a fun and experiential way. They have the chance to see real world applications of what they learn about in school, and are also exposed to potential STEAM careers they could pursue. The event takes place in September and is comprised of volunteers including BFA parents, teachers and staff, as well as vendors from all content areas. Everyone sets up in the gym for the day and all students and staff have the chance to spend about an hour exploring the different offerings.
This is the first time we added the “A” to transform our STEM Expo into a STEAM Expo. The integration of the “A” encourages our students to explore the Arts, which fosters creativity in all subject areas. This is also the first time we’ve had HawkQuest at the Expo. Seeing a Falcon, Owl, and Bald Eagle was a huge treat!
