Adkins Elementary Initiates STEAM Book Challenge

Every month, Adkins Elementary is STEAMing it up with a family fun STEAM challenge. Students are encourage along with their families to create a project based on a selected book for the month.

September’s book was Violet the Pilot by Steve Breen. Students were asked to voluntarily participate in a design challenge and create an airplane worthy of the blue ribbon. They could be creative with any supplies and help Violet take flight by designing an air worthy prototype. They could also email a video link of their creation to the elementary school so that it might be featured on the morning news in September.

STEAM challenges incorporate science, technology, engineering, arts, and math. They are designed to stretch a student’s thinking, exercise creativity and enjoy quality family time.
