A STEAM Fair Full of Ingenuity 

Isom Elementary PTA and STEAM teacher Tiffany McDonald orchestrated the school’s inaugural STEAM Fair. The event showcased an array of student projects, spanning from kindergarten through fifth grade, each reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of STEAM education. 

The fair welcomed guest speakers from the Lynden community, including a veterinarian, internet safety advocate, Lego and robotics enthusiasts, local artists and nursing professionals. These speakers shared insights on how their respective professions incorporate elements of STEAM, enriching the educational experience for students.

Throughout the event, 87 student projects were on display. Kindergarten through second grade students delighted visitors with animal reports accompanied by Maker Space builds of their chosen creatures. Third through fifth graders showcased ingenuity through a variety of projects, including engineering and scientific inquiries. Melissa Warner’s class also showcased Isom’s robots.

The STEAM Fair celebrated academic achievements while fostering imagination and creativity through innovative displays and hands-on builds.

Isom thanks LTI and DariTech for supporting the fair with sponsorships.
