CANTON, Ga. -- The first-ever Cherokee County School District STEM Expo was held last week at Holly Springs Elementary School STEM Academy.
Students and parents attended the expo to learn more about lessons, activities and possible careers in science, technology, engineering and math.
"The grade-level teachers hosting these lab classrooms were very energetic and engaging, and the students and parents all seemed grateful for the opportunity to see STEM in action," Dr. Brian Hightower, assistant superintendet of school operations, said in a statement.
The STEM Expo is a countywide initiative to get students excited about the sciences. Participating kids perform demonstrations and show off their work.
"It was a great evening, as the Holly Springs ES students, parents and staff represented their new academy with pride," Hightower said.
