First Annual STEAM Fair at Byron-Bergen Elementary

By on June 3, 2019

Byron-Bergen Elementary School presented the First Annual STEAM Fair on Tuesday, May 21. STEAM students shared their accomplishments in the fields of science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics with their schoolmates and community. The event was the culmination of months of learning, exploring, and creativity. 

“The most amazing thing about this event is how accomplished the work is,” said Byron-Bergen Elementary School Principal Brian Meister. “The students really take ownership of the day. They supervise the games that they have designed, present the science and art projects that they completed, and are truly proud of their achievements. We are all proud.” 

During the school day, students enjoyed activities including yoga ball plinko. The classic game of chance transformed into a fully interactive, outdoor, relay race as students rolled yoga balls down a hill of bumper posts to try to earn the most points in a given time period. While outside, students also learned how to reuse scavenged items to make new products like Big Head Boxes with visiting students from the Rochester Institute of Technology. Inside, students enjoyed face painting, math games, science project presentations, and a K-6 visual art exhibition. 

In the evening, the event opened to the public featuring many of the day’s activities in addition to interactive robot basketball, a robot golf course designed by Byron-Bergen students, and virtual reality field trips.
