NEW HARTFORD, NY – Applying science to everyday life.

From the chemistry of the perfect cannoli filling, to programming robots.

That was the goal of the 3rd annual Family Spring STEAM event at New Hartford High School Saturday.

STEAM stands for Science-Technology-Engineering-Arts-and Math.

Grade school students from the New Hartford school district spent the afternoon getting hands on experience to what they’ve been learning in the classroom.

James Davis, an instructional support specialist at OHM BOCES, thinks this type of learning will help students think outside the box.

“One of the things that we think will happen from activities such as this, is that you’ll see teachers design lesson plans that will be geared to hands-on learning. You may also see students take another angle on problem solving for challenges they’re presented with in the classroom.”

NewsChannel 2 meteorologist Jill Reale also participated in the event.

She taught the kids about what else?

Weather.
