STEAM Academy and Youth & Community Conference

Student teams designed culminating projects, which required them to demonstrate their understanding of the central learning goals of the program. All final projects incorporated coding, origami, and scaling to address one of the United Nations Sustainable Development goals. Attendees of the STEAM Youth and Community Conference received information about future Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) opportunities for students; learned about STEAM careers and networked with STEAM professionals; participated in interactive STEAM workshops; learned about connections between art and STEM; received valuable information about college and discounts on SAT/ACT courses; competed in mathematics and engineering games for prizes; and learned about the University of San Diego via a campus tour.
