Message from the STEAM Coordinator
The Power of Transformation
 This summer, I was in Argentina visiting family and friends. Among our many adventures, we went to see Toy Story 4. In this movie, the principal human character is Bonnie, a kindergartener who creates a toy out of a spork (a weird combination of a fork and a spoon), a pipe cleaner, and some classroom materials. The child names it “Forky.”  Read More and watch the STEAM video below.
