Summer Steam: Summer Fun

Summer STEAM

The Charles Melton Arts & Education Center Summer STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, & math) program is designed to immerse youth in STEAM education. The program uses STEAM education to develop and cultivate interest in the STEAM fields through hands-on learning, STEAM education, and field trips to prepare students for future STEAM education.

The kids are being exposed to new careers with hands-on learning in website development, drone technology, building design, biomedical engineering, and solar energy, with so much more. The most important lesson they’re learning, though? In the words of one of our 1st graders: “To work together and have fun!”
Thank you First Presbyterian Church of West Chester, PA and Rudy Treichel for an amazing series of engineering lessons and challenges this week!
