The Parish School, Dana Point

We filled the Maker Space for two different presentations and photo ops at The Parish School's STREAM night in Dana Point. Students and families listened to stories about how R2-D2 was built and how we use him, and got inspired for their own building projects. In the gym, students displayed home-baked desserts to convey the space theme. Classrooms showed their STREAM projects such as programmable robots in the 4th grade classrooms. Creative student posters were hung throughout the hallways promoting the event.
