On March 15, the Sandy Springs Education Force (SSEF) held its first in-person STEAM showcase since 2019.
Held at North Springs High School, the occasion featured greater than two dozen interactive reveals showcasing science, expertise, engineering, arts and arithmetic (STEAM).
For instance, Emory Saint Joseph’s Hospital allowed individuals to “operate” utilizing their Da Vinci surgical robotic system. Cox Enterprises engaged college students with a human-centered design exercise. Comcast illustrated a distant management operated by the consumer’s eyes, and Lowe Engineers showcased how growth impacts stormwater runoff.
In the night, the general public faculties in Sandy Springs who obtain STEAM Legacy Grants from the SSEF displayed their work.
More than 1,500 college students from North Springs High School, Riverwood High School, Sandy Springs Charter Middle School and Ridgeview Middle School visited reveals throughout the day, and round 600 group and elementary faculty households attended the night exhibition.
“I was so happy to have the STEAM Showcase in person after two years of pandemic shutdown,” Scott Hanson, principal of North Springs High School, mentioned in an occasion recap. “The exhibitors brought their products to show and encourage our students to see what they could explore as a career. At the end of the night, when students showcased what SSEF brings to our local schools through robotics and drones, it shows the community the commitment of SSEF to help our students have some awesome experiences they might not normally have.”
The SSEF is a education-focused nonprofit that collaborates with civic leaders, companies and volunteers to design and ship free applications within the 11 public faculties in Sandy Springs. For extra data, go to sandyspringseducationforce.org.
