STEAM at AGM
Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) came to AGM recently as visitors from Binghamton University and Lockheed Martin showed students the wonders of STEAM.
Students in all grades had the opportunity to work with BU science students and Lockheed engineers on various age-appropriate experiments.
Students assembled actual working electrical circuits, put together buildings using pipe cleaners, built DNA molecular structures with toothpicks, marshmallows and Twizzlers, and learned how to make and fly paper airplanes.
Students used team-work skills to plan, create, and assemble each structure and the professional visitors took time to discuss and demonstrate how and why the projects worked, as well as its meaning and purpose. They also discussed careers in these fields, the education needed and why STEAM is an important part of education and our lives.
