STEAM Fair: Creativity & Curiosity on Display at St. Paul’s

St. Paul’s families enjoyed plenty of student artwork displays and hands-on activities at the recent STEAM Fair. This was a wonderful opportunity to spark some creativity and curiosity for our students and their families while celebrating all the STEAM learning this year St. Paul’s!

Families enjoyed the colorful sights throughout the building with an array of Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade student artwork in classrooms, hallways, and common spaces. Here are some highlights from the event:

  • In the Early Childhood Commons, students designed objects to fly in our wind tube.
  • St. Paul’s parent and local artist, Mrs. Heybrock, demonstrated the art of glass blowing for students.
  • In our lower school art room, students made and decorated pinwheels.
  • In our third floor Makerspace and FlexHub, students enjoyed projects made by 5th and 6th graders. 5th graders recently programmed a Microbit to make a robotic object, and families were able to observe them in motion! 6th grades created Scratch video games and connected them each to a Makey Makey. Visitors were encouraged to explore and play the games. Super Mario with banana controllers, copper tape instruments, Simon with playdoh, and more!

A big round of applause goes out to our St. Paul’s faculty and division heads who coordinated such a fun evening for our families. Events like this help us all celebrate the dynamic learning and fun that happens in St. Paul’s classrooms year round!
