Back in 2018 – Volunteer and Presenters Recognition Event!

Another Great Success at our Volunteer Recognition Event!

Thank you to all the presenters and volunteers who came , and we also appreciate the company of Massachusetts Councilor at Large Nina Liang who joined us, too.

A good time was had by all.  Each of the participants shared their experience from this past April and you could sense eagerness to be part of the next South Shore Science Festival — our 5th Anniversary — in 2019.  Getting to know each other this way is not only a positive thing for the festival itself, it’s fun.

Thank you also to our Recognition Event Sponsors: Boston Scientific, Liberty Bay Credit Union, Gateway to Science: Sports & Games and Positive BCS

STEM / STEAM

Are you familiar with the STEM, or STEAM, approach to teaching?  It aims to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics.  It steps away from the traditional textbook-only, single-subject approach to show the relationships among these areas.

 

Science and math have practical applications by bringing in engineering and technology.  The arts, including music, are based on the science of light and color as well as sound, and much more.  This broad-based approach will reach more students with all their different ranges of strengths.

Every week we will be presenting a flavor of the festival, opportunities for you to be part of it, and a sample of recent technology we offered. In addition, we will suggest some STEM events happening in this area.

Great Success at our Volunteer Recognition Event 2017!

A good time was had by all.  Each of the participants shared their experience from this past April and you could sense eagerness to be part of the next South Shore Science Festival — our 4th — in 2018.  Getting to know each other this way is not only a positive thing for the festival itself, it’s fun.
