STEAM fair participants

On March 28, the University of Utah’s Education Pathways program based at the Glendale-Mountain View Community Learning Center proudly supported the successful launch of Mountain View Elementary School's inaugural STEAM Fair night. The aim of this event was to introduce math, science, technology, arts and engineering concepts to students while igniting and reinforcing their curiosity and passion for learning.

The two-hour event hosted over 100 elementary students and their families who eagerly participated in a variety of STEM and arts-based activities facilitated by many different community partners, including the university’s STEM Ambassadors, and representatives from the chemistry, biology, neuroscience, and nutrition departments. These activities create opportunities for young students to develop interest in science and art, and serve as a catalyst for inspiring innovation and fostering a lifelong love for learning.

Contributing community partners include The Leonardo, Great Salt Lake Institute at Westminster University, the STEM Community Alliance Program, Wasatch Community Gardens, Utah State University 4-H, Bad Dog Arts, Clark Planetarium, and Natural History Museum of Utah, among other organizations. This wide array of community partners not only exposed students to STEM and arts-centered learning, but also to STEAM careers and educational pathways toward higher education.
