PSJ Open House empowers STEAM students

With the help of dedicated volunteers, Port St. Joe Elementary School Art Teacher Kelly Deal combined all the elements of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics), along with entrepreneurship, for a multifaceted event April 16.

The event, both indoors and outdoors, combined the fifth grade science fair along with the Kindergarten through sixth grade science projects.

A display showed off the art projects for students in pre-Kindergarten through eighth grades.

Outside, students who created their own things, whether it was baked goods or bracelets, original artwork or creative crafts, could sell it to raise money for their own pet projects.
