Spoede Elementary Hosts Annual S.T.E.A.M. Carnival

Last week, Spoede Elementary held its annual S.T.E.A.M Carnival (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) over two days! The event helps kids get excited about the science and technology topics they will explore throughout the year.All of the 1st and 2nd graders attend one day, and 3rd and 4th grade students attend the next day. Students are placed in groups of five or six and rotate through eight stations, which are run by parents, teachers, community members, high school teachers, and high school students. The stations provide opportunities to explore scientific topics the learn about in the curriculum throughout the year, but in fun and engaging ways. This year, the students had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity; they got to touch a real human brain!
