Maker Faire Rochester Student STEAM Fest

Registration Open Now for Limited Number of Classrooms

Last year, 1,200 students from 50 grade 3-8 classrooms from 28 districts across Western New York attended the inaugural event to experience a range of different activities presented by science, technology, engineering, arts and math-related organizations and volunteers, including some of the Western New York Regional Information Center’s own.

The Student STEAM Fest is for students in grades 3-8 and will include a day filled with hands-on activities, engaging demonstrations and excitement centered around every aspect of STEAM and the Maker movement. High school groups are also encouraged to apply for a booth to be a presenter.

 All presenters will be aligned into “strands” centering around robotics and drones; think, design, create; hands-on science; sustainability; coding and things that go blink; the arts; and do it yourself (DIY). WNYRIC is again partnering with New York State Association of Computers and Technologies in Education (NYSCATE), Make: Magazine and others to present this event to schools.

“One of our goals at WNYRIC is to maximize the quality of instruction and to improve learning. Our staff development coordinators work to do that every day in classrooms across 100 school districts in western New York. This event takes STEAM integration in the classroom to the next level and we at WNYRIC are proud to promote this opportunity for students,” Elizabeth M. Freas, assistant superintendent of Educational Supports and WNYRIC Services, said.

Registration is limited and can be completed online or by mail by heading to the NYSCATE website. The cost of $250 pays for registration for 25 students, one teacher and two chaperones. All activities and materials are included. Lunch can be packed or purchased on site at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center. Check with your local BOCES about using the Arts & Ed Co-SER to help aid registration.
