The students and staff of West Ferris Secondary School’s STEAM program in North Bay will be working collaboratively with the students and staff of St. Padre Pio Catholic Elementary School’s STREAM program.
The North Bay students traveled to the GTA yesterday, participated in a workshop as a part of the “Today at Apple” events at Apple retail stores, and today are set to work with 22 classes at St. Padre Pio in Woodbridge.
"This is a one of a kind event that will highlight the impact of STEM, STEAM and STREAM in the Ontario Education System," says Ryan Culhane, a teacher at West Ferris Secondary School. "It will also highlight how students can work with, and help other students in a different geographic area in Ontario."
A first-ever, one of a kind event that will prove to be a highlight for STEM education in Ontario, the workshops and collaboration start at 8:30 a.m and will run throughout the 22 classes all day until completion at 3:15 p.m.
