STEAM Day Design Challenge

In our penultimate On-Campus Community weekend of the academic year, the Cushing community engaged in our STEAM Day Design Challenge event. STEAM (an acronym of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) programming fosters the innovation and creativity of our Penguins.

Some of our many STEAM challenges required students to code, engineer catapults, construct furniture from cardboard, and build Rube Goldberg Machines.

More photos of the design challenges are available on our Photo Gallery page.
