STEM School Chattanooga will host the fourth annual STEM Jubilee event at Coolidge Park on May 16 and 17. Presented by First Tennessee Bank, the STEM Jubilee will be attended by approximately 3,000 elementary students from throughout Hamilton County and will be the largest school-based STEM activity to ever be hosted in the region.
This annual event introduces elementary school students to a variety of STEM-related concepts through hands-on activities at over 75 booths with a mission to inspire STEM curiosity and interest.
Created by students, these games, activities and challenges have been tested in the classroom as STEM School Chattanooga students continue to share the importance of STEM-based learning with schools throughout the county. From robotics and drones to air cannons, bubbles and microscopes the students attending this event will have fun as they enjoy hands-on experiences with innovative, engaging activities.
“Events like this allow us to help introduce the importance of a STEM education to students, teachers and families from around Hamilton County,” said Dr. Tony Donen, the school’s principal. STEM School Chattanooga was recognized by America Achieves as one of thirty schools worldwide denoted as a “World-Leading Learner School,” and its robotics team represented the school at the FIRST Robotics World Championship competition this year. The Fab Foundation celebrated STEM School Chattanooga for prominence in digital fabrication STEM education and the Tennessee Department of Education Commissioner lauded the school as a model for the rest of the State. This week, STEM School Chattanooga was awarded the inaugural “STEM School Designation” by the Tennessee Department of Education as one of 15 schools in the entire state and recognized as the only school in Tennessee with a perfect score for STEM designation.
