Washingtonville Central School District Hosts STEAM Fair

It was full steam ahead at Washingtonville Central School District (WCSD) on June 4 as they hosted their inaugural STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) Fair. The evening, which welcomed students and their families along with community members, was held in the Washingtonville Middle School gymnasium, ZLab, and library.  

Approximately 200 people attended the event, which showcased projects completed throughout the year by the District’s talented K-12 students, in addition to hands-on learning stations, STEAM inspired arts and crafts, food and baked goods, a disassembling of devices station, and more. 

At one exhibit, Taft Elementary School students showcased interactive STEAM projects. They used computers to code various cardboard animals they crafted, which combined technology, engineering, and art skills. The students’ expertise allowed the cardboard creatures’ wings to move, mouths to open, and more. 

The evening, co-chaired by the WCSD Technology Department and Teacher Center, provided a way for the community to see how Washingtonville innovates. “It was an exciting night filled with all things STEAM,” said WCSD Technology Director Joseph Catania. “It was truly inspiring to see the wide variety of exhibits from students of all grade levels showcasing STEAM exercises in different ways.” 

The various activities and games allowed students and their families to explore basic STEAM concepts and practice a variety of skills, including problem-solving, programming, creativity, and overall working with technology. “We wanted the Washingtonville community to be able to see first-hand how the teachers are incorporating STEAM activities in the classroom, and how excited students are about it,” noted WCSD Teacher Center Director Carla Sansone.
