The expos were designed to give parents an idea of what their students are learning and accomplishing in the classroom and lab.

The county's STEM Academies put heavy focus on lessons in science, technology, engineering and math.

"The pre-K and 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 superintendent for school operations, said in a statement. "It was obvious that the school's staff and other stakeholders had worked very hard to coordinate this event during the first semester of the Academy's implementation."

"It was a great evening, as the CES students, parents and staff represented their new Academy with pride," Hightower added.
