On Saturday December 2nd students from St Martin of Tours Academy participated in the 2017 STEAM Maker Fest at the Del Mar Fair Grounds. This is the first year that schools from the Diocese of San Diego have participated in this event. The Steam Maker Fest is an opportunity for students from public and private schools to spend a day exploring science, math, engineering and art through fun and interactive challenges and activities. This year the Diocese teamed up with STEAM Maker Fest to design a challenge specific for Diocesan schools. Each school picked four out of twelve scientific demonstration devices to create presentations for the competition. Teams of four students had to learn the scientific principles behind the device and then create a presentation and display to demonstrate their understanding of the science behind the device. St Martins entered two 7th grade and two 8th grade teams in the challenge. Our 7th grade team made up of Aden Shafer, Jackson Flemming, Elizabeth Spiller , and Diego Baca took first place for their presentation on the physics of sound. It was a very fun and successful day for our SMA students and their families and we are already looking forward to STEAM Maker Fest 2018.
