Sycamore Community STEAM Showcase
You are invited to Sycamore Community Schools first-ever K-12 STEAM Showcase on Saturday, May 12 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at E.H. Greene Intermediate.
The purpose of the event is to spotlight district-wide STEAM learning and local businesses and organizations that utilize STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, math) in their work. The showcase will consist of live demonstrations, presentations, competitions, giveaways, and hands-on activities for all ages.
Some of the local organizations who will be participating include UC Blue Ash, Kroger Technology, Apple, Gorilla Maker, and the city of Blue Ash and Montgomery.
We are also excited to show off some of the work that is happening in our classrooms, including live demos of the AVES electric car, Blue Ash GeoCity, Montgomery PBL Carnival, and FIRST LEGO League. There will be opportunities for families to work with robotics, Makedo, and virtual reality. Come make a Mother’s Day present on our 3D printers!
Local food trucks will be serving food and refreshments from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
We anticipate a large turnout for this indoor/outdoor event. A free shuttle service from Maple Dale Elementary to E.H. Greene will run between 11:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
