STEAM Club Opportunity for 5th & 6th Grade Students

This year we are excited to once again offer STEAM Club opportunities for our 5th and 6th grade students. The activities will always be advertised in the Buffett Bulletin. There will be several different opportunities throughout the school year. One great thing about STEAM Club is your student can choose what interests them without having to commit to a full year club!


STEAM Club will take place after school from dismissal until 4:30. Any student needing to take the late bus will be supervised until the late bus leaves. The late bus typically leaves Buffett by 5:10.


Our first opportunity will be sponsored by Ms. Hinde. She will be doing two 4-week sessions where each date will highlight a different activity. One activity will be coding with Sphero robots, one will be using STEAM kits to build, one will utilize MakerSpace activities, and one will be using Breakout Boxes.


Please use the link below or the QR code to sign up. There will be a limit of 16 participants for each set of dates.


Look for more opportunities in the weeks to come!
