Grand River Academy is excited to host its October STEAM Day on Saturday, October 29th from 9:30am – 12:30pm, with the Halloween themed “Towers of Terror.” This popular event at GRA is offered to local students entering first through eighth grade and has participants from across Ashtabula County.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. For the autumn session, children will spend the morning in GRA’s Robert S. Morrison Lecture Center and Skeggs Hall creating “haunted” towers by exploring engineering, construction and the relationship between stability and height. They will then apply that knowledge as they determine how high their towers will go while using common household materials.
Headmaster Tim Viands shares “These events bring a unique opportunity for local children to learn about science in an engaging and interactive way on GRA’s campus with our teachers and student volunteers. We’re finishing up our second year of hosting these events and I’m excited to see how they will continue to evolve and grow.” The GRA STEAM team has already scheduled its next STEAM Saturday to be held on March 4, 2017.
Registration is still open for October's event and you can sign-up by clicking here until October 19th.
