Lansing Community College is inviting students in grades K-6 to STEAMfest at LCC 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2. This FREE event will be held at the Downtown Campus in the Arts & Sciences Building located at 419 N. Washington Square with free parking in the Gannon Ramp, 600 N. Grand Avenue.
STEAMfest will provide a fun and exciting day of exploration in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). There will be more than 50 hands-on activities, including Drawing in Proportion, IR Photography, Create A Comet, Fun Math, Spirals, Fantastic Frogs, Elemental Extravaganza and Weather or Not. The atmosphere is one of learning without the pressure of competition.
This annual event has been held at LCC for over thirty years. It began as an elementary version of the competitive Science Olympiad and was converted to a non-competitive version around 10 years ago.
We are thrilled to welcome back the arts to this event. Melissa Kaplan LCC academic and arts outreach coordinator said, “Arts activities this year create a bridge to the sciences. Young people can experience the magic of stroboscopic photography, learn costume techniques to make a mini-monster or a nature pouch, create characters in theatre games, make an audio speaker, and learn some stage combat tomahawk techniques.”
The day will be filled with wonderful opportunities for young people to experience STEAM concepts in a fun and interactive environment.
