A relatively new program for Vallejo students made an appearance at this year’s Solano County Fair to spread the news.
Representatives and a few students belonging to the Vallejo City Unified School District K-8 STEAM program held a demonstration booth Thursday at the fair.
“It is our first time at the fair,” STEAM Program Coordinator Lilibeth Pinpin said. “We want the community to be part of our program, to know that there’s such a program.
“I always envision a borderless education.”
STEAM — Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics — teaches students through project-based learning, and incorporates modern technology, like 3-D printing for middle school students.
“We want to prepare them for the academies (in high school),” Pinpin said.
