STEAM Hands-On Activity

Ashburton students and their parents will get a chance to do a STEAM Hands-on activity in their home, and to join a presenter and their friends on Zoom for double the fun. Presenters will give step by step instructions for the STEAM activities, which will use common household items. The presenters will also provide interesting facts about the activity, the science behind it, and answer any questions students may have.

Homeroom teachers will share the list of STEAM activities and any required supplies, and parents and students will be invited to reserve a spot in advance for their favorites.
