THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

The STEAM Team and Brentwood School would like to thank the many people who contributed to this exciting event. We are incredibly fortunate to have the support of so many members of our community, including: the activity leaders, administrators, business office, communications office, custodial staff, Eagles, event staff, maintenance staff, parents, teachers, technology staff and upper school students. This event would certainly not be the event it is going to be without all of their time and effort. From the beginning, the idea gathered momentum. As the day approached more people embraced the idea and jumped on board to help. This truly has been a community wide effort.                     

Full STEAM Ahead!

Photo "Super-Awesome" Sylvia started making and tinkering with things when she was 7, and always loved to try out new things. One year after visiting Maker Faire, she and her dad were inspired to create a web-show about making things called “Sylvia’s Super-Awesome Maker Show”, where she shows kids and adults that making things can be fun, easy and more rewarding than just buying something purpose built. Now 11 years old and millions of views later, she’s covered everything from hobby rocketry, to sewable soft circuits, to simple Arduino projects. The show has garnered attention from parents and educators the world over finding that something about the show gets students interested in making things and learning something along the way.
