STEAM CAMP Gallery

July 31, 2019

Students from all over the Upper Valley gathered together this past week at Saint Gaudens to attend their annual STEAM Camp. Dawn brought the SCCD stream table to Blow Me Down Farm in Cornish and students observed how water moves over and around obstacles in the stream.  Small groups of students were challenged to create a town that included houses, vegetation, and a bridge with a culvert system and protect it from the power of storm and flood waters. They got a chance to think like city planners and test their ideas on the river model. 

 

The theme of water and movement continued as the middle school students created self-propelled boats that were raced down the river and finished with a stream critter search. Critters were observed more closely as students investigated how each one moved through the water or stayed put in the current. They observed body structures and behaviors and later identified each organism before releasing them back into their habitats.
