BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com)(Media Advisory) — To help promote science, technology, engineering, math and art to the South Florida community, Grandview Preparatory School hosted “STEM Night” on its Boca Raton campus on Wednesday evening. The free event, which was facilitated by the South Florida Science Center and included a variety of interactive activities, experiments and demonstrations, was open to the public and tailored for kids ages three to 12 and their families. Photos are of kids learning and participating in activities.
This event also helped introduce Grandview Preparatory School’s new innovative science-themed programs to the community. STEM is the intersection of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Grandview is now offering a STEAM course, which adds the element of art and design to these fields. Schools that offer STEM and STEAM recognize the importance of cross-curricular learning and real world applications of learning taking place in the classroom. With the addition of Grandview’s new Maker Space, a building dedicated to student-driven design and creation, students will practice and master skills related to STEM and STEAM while turning their ideas into reality.
