WILLIAMSBURG — It was a day of science, technology, and fun at Timothy Christian School (TCS) in Williamsburg on Oct. 24. On this week every year TCS hosts an event they call STEM — Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. This year they decided to add another aspect to the event — Art— changing the acronym to STEAM.

Students were split into groups and then travelled between five different rooms. Each room held a different activity.

The five activities included:

  • Building a sturdy bridge out of a maximum of 50 straws
  • Simple Circuits
  • Art with circuits and a power source
  • Making slime
  • Balloon-powered Lego cars

TCS teacher Katrina Geertsma “organizes the event and comes up with new activities for it every year,” exclaimed fellow teacher Marlene Luchies.

“The kids just love it!” she added.
