  Triton College’s first ever STEAM Expo will provide students from throughout the area an exciting opportunity to explore the many ways that the STEAM fields – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – factor into their everyday lives.

 Mark your calendars for the STEAM Expo, Saturday, April 22, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., in the Collins Gymnasium (R Building) on the east side of campus, located at 2000 Fifth Ave., River Grove. 

This FREE interactive event is open to the community and will feature dozens of hands-on activities and demonstrations that will capture students’ imagination and inspire them to pursue their goals.

 Attendees will participate in challenging contests for a chance to win great prizes. Food provided by Triton’s culinary program students will be available for purchase.

 In one activity, attendees will be introduced to the world of robotics as they build their own Lego™ robot that will move in ways they never imagined possible. Expert builders from Triton’s Engineering/Technology Department will be on hand to help.

 Another exhibit will feature faculty and students from Triton’s Fire Science Program demonstrating the role that math plays in helping firefighters keep communities safe as they battle dangerous blazes. With a working fire rig on display, you will see how firefighters determine which hose is most appropriate to fight each fire, calculating water pressure and other factors. The exhibit will also demonstrate the mechanics involved in delivering artificial ventilation to patients at fire scenes. 

 The STEAM Expo will also serve as a celebration of Earth Day, featuring a display designed to educate the public about the benefits of energy saving ‘smart grid’ technology, as well as other tips for living a greener lifestyle. 

 STEAM Expo activities are age-appropriate for middle school students, though children and adults of all ages are invited to attend.
