St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School

St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School STEAM Program

Through hands-on exploration, Mrs. Birsinger’s 1st graders work together to design and build catapults and other structures using marshmallows and toothpicks.  As part of the STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art and Math) framework, St. Anthony of Padua students identify design challenges and develop solutions collaboratively.  In the process, they acquire a better understanding of tools and materials and how they work.
