Mobile STEAM Museum Visits E.M. Baker School

Elementary students work together to build an arch out of foam blocks.

The Mobile Ed STEAM Museum visited E.M. Baker School and transformed the gymnasium into a state-of-the-art children’s museum on Jan. 7–8. All Baker classes in grades K–5 attended the museum to participate in fun, hands-on activities with a focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM). Here, students use engineering skills to build a parabolic arch out of large foam blocks, while learning about the function of a keystone and how force is dispersed. This mobile museum program was made possible with support from the Baker PTA and parent volunteers.
