INMED Opportunity Center hosted a STEAM Day on Saturday, December 1st. Children ages 5-13 years old came to the Center and participated in science related activities and a contest of building a bridge that was solely about working together. For each activity they learned about measuring, which included making a Lava Lamp, Volcano Explosion, and Slime. The students were grouped by age and had 30 minutes using Play-Doh, craft sticks, and pipe cleaners to compete to build the best bridge. Thank you to all who participated.
