SUFFERN, N.Y. -- A STEAM expo, featuring everything from robots to hydroponic gardens, is set for March at Suffern High School, said organizers, the Reach Foundation of Rockland County.
STEAM, which stands for science, technology, engineering, art and math, is more than just the subjects it names; it means young learners will get actual hands-on experience in what they will eventually encounter in college and the workforce.
The expo is set for 11 a.m. - 3 p.m. Sunday, March 6.
Among those already signed up to participate or sponsor the expo are: Aufgang Architects, Cub Scout Pack 23, Teachers-to-Tutors, Artytime, Town of Ramapo Challenge Center, Little Ivy Academy, Coderkidz2, the Nature Place Day Camp, Hubble Telescope engineer Joe Blondin, and Mad Science of Hudson Valley.
There will be a districtwide art show, a robotics demonstration, sculpture-making with recyclables, coding workshops, a hydroponic garden, and much more, organizers say.
To register, go to www.ReachFoundation.org .
To volunteer or be a sponsor, call Deana Goldstein or Jessica Swerdloff, STEAM Expo co-chairs, at (845) 664-2994, or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The high school is located at 49 Viola Road, Suffern.
