Festival of Curiosity
- Posted by Noel Harroff
Sparking Curiosity at CEMS
On Friday, June 2nd, Cape Elizabeth Middle School will be filled with over 50 hands-on learning activities centered around Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics (STEAM) led by teachers, business leaders, community outreach educators and volunteers. This event is for the entire CEMS student body for the entire school day.
The Festival's primary goal is simple: to inspire. Innovation continues to be a key component to progress, and we hope to inspire middle school students in preparation for future jobs that may not yet exist by showcasing the joy of engaging in STEAM activities. We want students to experience the process of asking hard, curiosity-seeking questions, as well as the drive and thrill of chasing down answers to those questions. And finally we want students to discover the use of STEAM in everyday life. In other words, to be inspired by STEAM next time they are on the field and thinking about the probability of winning the game.
Please support our mission as we spark curiosity, build a community event and inspire the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers, artists, and mathematicians. Currently, we have the following organizations, professionals, and businesses lined up to participate at the event: CE Detectives Mark Duval and David Galvan, CELT, ecomaine, EepyBird, Electro Toy Co., Engineers without Borders, Fort William Park Foundation, IDEXX, Maine DEP, Maine Medical Research, NeraCoos, Open Bench Project, PATHS, Portland Sea Dogs, ReVision Energy, Side x Side, SOLO Wilderness, Surf Rider, Southern Maine Astronomers, The Telling Room, The University of Maine Aviation Dept., Thomas Memorial Library, Trout Brook Restoration, Veterinary Quick Care at Mill Creek, Weatherman Todd Gunter, and Woodward & Curran
