Coral Academy of Science Hosts S.T.E.A.M. Expo
Students and faculty of Coral Academy of Science hosted the 4th annual interactive S.T.E.A.M. Exposition in the Reno/Sparks area on May 20.
The event was designed to stimulate an awareness, interest and discussion in the community about the importance of an integrated curriculum that includes the sciences, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics. Attendees of all ages had the opportunity to participate in several engaging presentations, live demonstrations, and hands-on activities.
“This event is a great opportunity for students and adults to learn more about S.T.E.A.M. and Coral Academy,” said Nick Pasto, Graphic Design and Digital Game Development High School Teacher, in a press release. “We are approaching this expo the same we approach our curriculum, by giving students a hands-on experience that inspires curiosity and creativity.”
