1/27/19: Going Strong
The STEAM BUS Team is hard at work! Not only are we busy visiting schools and testing out new activities, but we're developing new curriculum as well. Our team of students is only growing, and we're hoping to visit schools out of the district soon. We're also experimenting with some new VR/AR technology - keep an eye out to see where we go next!
11/20/18: Our Launch!
We started this project just about 2 years ago and we can't believe how far we've come. We are finally ready to bring STEAM education to all. We visited first graders at Glencliff, Craig, Hillside, Rosendale, and Birchwood and it was a huge success. They helped Ozobot make it to Thanksgiving Dinner with Grandma using programming with colors.
11/12/18: Going Solar
After a white paint job and a solar installation by Monolith Solar, our bus is just about ready to visit a school near you. Now, our bus uses the power of the sun to power all sorts of STEAM activities. We will be launching with first graders at Niskayuna elementary schools on the 19th and 20th. We can't wait to show them how exciting STEAM really is!
07/20/18 We Have a Bus!
After hard work and a little patience, we have secured a bus and there is no stopping us now. Mr. Adamo is well on his way to being our bus driver and retrofitting the bus is all that's left. We'd like to thank Monolith Solar for helping us with the solar and power systems for the bus and helping make this project a reality.
