Iron Springs Elementary was the first ICSD school to host a STEAM night this spring for students and families. Over 60 families were in attendance to participate in 20+ hands on science, technology, engineering, arts, and math activities.
A big thank you to district elementary STEM coordinator, Sara McAffee, and the volunteers from SUU, Southwest Tech, 4H, and Code Changers who all contributed to the success of this event. Families were able to participate in many activities, including practicing CPR, building a Lego wall, programming computer devices to play games, making a meteorite using dry ice, and practicing welding using a virtual machine.
