Welcome to Celebrate STEAM. Many of you are familiar with and have participated in the Celebration of Our Mountains events here in the El Paso Southwest. Along with hiking and mountain biking and several other outdoors recreational activities, Celebration of Our Mountains seeks to teach people of all ages about the geology, ecology and biology of this beautiful part of the Chihuahuan Desert where we live.
Now Celebrate STEAM offers the same type of field trips to all by visiting places here in El Paso valuable for scientific, technological, engineering, art and mathematics. This season you will visit the El Paso Electric Power Station and Solar Facility, see the engineering projects at El Paso Water’s TECH2O, tour the labs of the Cardwell Collaborative, visit KVIA and learn more about the art and science of broadcasting, go to an exhibit about environmental ethics at the El Paso Art Museum, see Biodiesel production at Global Alternative Fuels, check out some UTEP science labs and see the hospital robotics at east campus of the Providence Hospitals of El Paso.
Celebrate STEAM is not just for students. It is also for their parents, teachers and all adults who are curious about science, technology, engineering, art and math.
Please join us for one or some or even all our field trips. You will marvel, and you will learn.
