STEAM Express to Roll Across Parish in October

Mobile Classroom Allows Parents to Engage in Fun Learning Activities

 

LIVINGSTON, La. – The district’s STEAM Express will be on the road this month, visiting campuses across the parish to inspire learning and excitement for science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) subjects.

The STEAM Express is Livingston Parish’s mobile classroom that is filled with a variety of hands-on interactive activities that students and their parents can do together.

“Our STEAM Express offers parents and their children a great opportunity to engage in learning together. Not only is it fun, but it’s an opportunity for parents to gain a better understanding of the types of learning activities that can be done outside the classroom,” said Superintendent Joe Murphy.

Instructional Coordinator Jolie Gregoire noted that use of the STEAM Express has been hampered over the past year due to the COVID pandemic.  However, she said district leaders have made appropriate adjustment to maintain a safe environment for visitors.

Gregoire said the STEAM Express is currently scheduled to be at the following events this month:

•          Oct. 14 -- Juban Parc Elementary “Full STEAM Ahead” Event, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

•          Oct. 15 & 18 -- Denham Springs Elementary “PBIS Reward” Activity, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. both days

•          Oct. 19 -- South Walker Elementary “Superhero Math Night” for Pre-K through 2nd grade, 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

•          Oct. 21 -- North Corbin Elementary “Fall Festival Math Night’” 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

•          Oct. 23 – Hebron Church Fall Festival, community-wide event, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

•          Oct. 26 -- Maurepas School “Math Night,” 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

            Gregoire noted that school leaders are willing to work with community organizers to schedule the STEAM Express for public events.  Those interested in having the STEAM Express at their event should contact Gregoire at the Livingston Parish School Board Office at 225-686-7044.

            “It’s about instilling learning opportunities everywhere we can.  Learning is fun and we want more people to experience that,” she said.
