Call for STEAM 2020 Volunteers & Participants!

What is STEAM day?

STEAM Day is an annual event at THES when folks from across the science, technology, engineering, arts and math fields facilitate “hands on” workshops for our grades 3-5 students. This gives students the opportunity to meet professionals in a variety of fields and experience what they do every day. Some past workshops have included coding, veterinarian science, working with drones, civil engineering, fabric art, ceramics, songwriting, and mask making for theatre… to name just a very few!

For our Pre-K to 2nd grade students, we organize a science or art demonstration, so they get a preview of what’s to come in the upper grades.

Who are we looking for?

Volunteers to “shadow” and help us organize this year’s event.

Our team of three co-chairs will be “graduating” from THES this year, so in order to keep STEAM alive after 2020, we need volunteers this year who would like to “shadow” / help us organize the event. This will allow you to see how it works.

Workshop Participants

If you are in a science, engineering, technology, math or arts related field and would like to facilitate a short (40 minute) workshop to the upper grade students, we need you!

How can I learn more?

Come to our next meeting on January 24th at 7:45 in the cafeteria.

Email Bob O’Dair (, Soo Lee Spaw ( Renée Pinchero ( for more information.

If you are concerned about time commitment or if you have never done anything like this before – we hadn’t either-- please feel free to send us an email!
