Chatterton School marked STEAM Day on May 23 with a series of events and activities that focused on science, technology, engineering, art and math.

Classes moved around the building for activities, as well as attended an interactive Wacky Science assembly.

Sixth graders organized and oversaw various stations in the multi-purpose room and gymnasium for younger students. They facilitated puzzles, rocketry, Lego building and more. Some even took charge of the green screen booth, showcasing their expertise in photography, photo editing and green screen software for younger students.

“Our sixth graders were patient and helpful with our younger students,” said James Keenan, a sixth-grade teacher and STEAM coordinator. “It was a great opportunity for them to serve as role models. Their enthusiasm and willingness to assist have made a significant impact on the STEAM Day experience.”

Teachers who run the school’s science enrichment program also helped organize the day.
