STEAM at Scituate

A very generous supporter of STEAM in Scituate who wishes to remain anonymous has placed a challenge before us: If we can raise $25,000 this year, this donor will match that! The Robotics and Technology Student Association (TSA) have kicked off our first STEAM fundraiser this year, lasting for only 22 more days. To contribute, please visit this link and share with your social networks:

From Biomedical Science

Students in Principles of Biomedical Science analyzed blood spatter this week. Students dropped fake blood from a variety of different heights and measured the diameter of the blood droplets. This is a technique that is used in crime scene forensics while analyzing a crime scene.

From Engineering

On Friday, September 28, students at the middle and high school got to talk to scientists currently on board the E/V Nautilus in five live interactions about their ongoing exploration in the

Papahānaumokuākea National Marine Monument near Hawaii. The phrase of the day was "arch volcanism" as we learned about how they are investigating a theory about how a particular set of underwater volcanoes formed to the north of the main island chain. Students also got to experience a virtual reality tour of the E/V Nautilus and the ROV Hercules with 180 images captured by Ms. Donovan when she was aboard Nautilus this summer.

Civil and Architectural Engineering

Students in Civil Engineering and Architecture completed a project studying and modeling different architectural styles. Thanks to support from the Scituate Lion's Club's support for Scituate STEAM, we were able to purchase a small laser etcher/cutter. So, stay tuned for the next iteration of this project when we are able to build the models from materials cut on the laser!
