STEAM Fling’s a hit!

The 2023 STEAM Fling gets kids and parents excited for a new chapter of education at SSES.

The first ever STEAM Fling at Saint Stephens was Friday, March 10th, and you had to be there to experience all the wonderful things that they had to offer.

Throughout the afternoon, students and parents were able to enjoy shows from the Circus Arts Conservatory, SSES crescendos, and the Treble Makers. Along with all of these fun shows, there were also hands-on learning activities including the Mote Marine Touch and Feel Stations, Fab Lab Science Experiences, and experiences you couldn’t miss from the SSES Math Blast!

“This is definitely the most unique thing we’ve done. This will get parents and students alike excited for the new STEAM center. The amazing part about this center is that it will extend knowledge, and excitement for education. With all of these different and unique individual subjects coming together, we are able to integrate a cross curriculum corse into the STEAM center which is what I am most excited for!”  – Cheri Cotton, Geometry teacher.

Seeing the smiling faces of everyone having a true passion for all of the different areas of STEAM, including Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math is amazing!

Along with all of the amazing activities that were offered, the STEAM Fling paid homage to Dr. Pullen’s retirement after 35 years of service and leadership to the school.

The new STEAM center will house all of the different and intricate classes and concepts that Saint Stephens has to offer. Many new opportunities and openings will be available after the completion of this center.
