The Langley School Hosts First-Ever STEAM Fair

The Langley School hosted its inaugural STEAM Fair on Saturday, Feb. 6 to celebrate the school’s interdisciplinary, inquiry-based approach to learning and discovery through science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.

More than 300 students and parents came to campus to take part in fun, interactive STEAM-based challenges such as building the tallest spaghetti tower that supported a single marshmallow, creating a lunar lander that prevented a marshmallow from bouncing out when it landed or building foil boats that held the most plastic bears afloat.

“STEAM initiatives are becoming an increasingly important part of our curriculum at Langley because they help students develop the collaborative design-thinking and problem-solving skills they will need to succeed in today’s ever-changing world,” said assistant head of school Kathleen Smith.
