- What is STEAM?
STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
The end results are students who take thoughtful risks, engage in experiential learning, persist in problem-solving, embrace collaboration, and work through the creative process. These are the innovators, educators, leaders, and learners of the 21st century!
- Who can participate?

- What is the cost?
$50 for the seven week series, which will include transportation for the field trip to Happy Valley, and other program supplies. There will be no refunds, prorated fees, or scholarships available.
- Additional Information:
Hikers need to bring a day pack with a hearty sack lunch, snacks, water bottle, rain gear, hat, gloves, rain boots, dry pants and socks, and need to dress in layers. Please try to avoid COTTON fabric as it retains water and takes a long time to dry. Quick drying fabrics, such as fleece and wool are best.
(Thursday) 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
