We are moving forward full STEAM ahead! We could use your help getting the STEAM Lab ready for the fall session; please join us this Sunday, August 5th, from 2-4pm at the lab site in the DeSoto Bass apartment complex for our first West Dayton Strong Full STEAM Ahead Site Tour and Clean Up Day!
The DeSoto Bass Community building is located at 811 Oldfield Avenue (this is the reference address if you are using GPS). Some additional directions to help you out; turn onto Oldfield Ave. off of Germantown Street; proceed on Oldfield and turn into the 2nd driveway on the left, parking along the curb. You will see a small brick building on your left beyond the iron fence.
Volunteers should meet at the community building and then the STEAM Lab project leaders will lead everyone to the apartment just across the yard. Please contact Project Leader, Tiffany Brown at (937) 815-1719 and/or RSVP for any questions.
STEAM Lab Update:
The STEAM Lab just finished up with their summer programming and was able to get the A/C working in the lab (it was broken most of the summer)!
The amazing West Dayton Strong Summer programming provided youth between ages 3-14 living in the DeSoto Bass community, with several opportunities to broaden their artistic, mathematical, scientific and engineering minds through multiple events and mentors! Some STEAM-inspired projects and activities this summer include: drones, urban garden tours, seed planting, nutrition, chef-led cooking demos, slime making, animal science, music/rhythm sessions, arts/crafts sessions, and marshmallow engineering! STEAM Lab thanks all of our volunteers and partners who helped make the summer an exciting and educational experience!
