2016 STEAM Symposium
Wednesday, April 13, 2016
The STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) The STEAM Symposium will take place on Thursday, April 14, 2016, in our brand new Athletic Arena. We invite you to come explore and see a variety of projects presented by Wheeler students.
Vision of the STEAM Symposium:
Celebrating Student STEAM Products with the Community
Description of the STEAM Symposium:
Imagine walking into a high-energy museum, receiving a program that directs the guest with a schedule and description of events that he/she can use to determine which areas to explore. In each area there will be various STEAM projects that have met a checklist of 4 criteria assessed by their teacher to insure that it is a high level product that displays connections between many subjects while also demonstrating practical applications to the real world. There will be students (9th-12th) from all types of classes displayed in multiple ways throughout Wheeler High School. Some rooms will be on a scheduled format where guests enter certain times (ie: every 10-15 minutes) so not to disrupt the student presentations. Other projects are displayed by the student with free entry/exit of guests at their pleasure. The program will have the schedule and description of these displays so guests can decide what projects they want to visit.
