STEAM Night Success!

Thank you to all who participated, presented, judged, showcased or supported STEAM Night at EPS and EIS last night! The event was a HUGE success with an unbelievable turnout!  

A special thanks to our three (wildly popular) food vendors: The Big Cheeze, La Poblana and 812 BBQ! Despite the rain, they were kept busy throughout the evening!   Thank you also to all our community partners: Science fair judges, Baxter Scientific, Cook Aviation, Go Green, Ray Amos Plastics, Parks and Recreation, Scaily Tailz, Ivy Tech, Boys & Girls Club of Ellettsville, Purdue Extension/4H, LEAP, IU Makerspace, and our own EHS engineering students!  Thank you especially, to all of our student leaders had the courage to step up, share their work with peers and families - they're sure to be representing STEAM-related community partners themselves some day!  

We hope you all enjoyed the showcase of hard work and innovative learning your children were able to share with families!
