Last month, ASU Prep Pilgrim Rest hosted a STEAM-Stravaganza to celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math with the community. The neighborhood event was packed with free STEAM-themed entertainment and was a way to spotlight the local campus and the ASU Prep network.
Students and families had the opportunity to do several hands-on experiments and activities, such as coding games, career exploration, and arts and crafts, as well as photo booth fun. Additionally, the evening featured live music, refreshments, and guided tours of the campus.
Parent Cheanell Jones said the evening was “a great opportunity to come in, get involved, meet the teachers, the staff, and other students.”
ASU Prep Academy Pilgrim Rest K-6 Assistant Principal Reggie Powell shared that they were very excited to host the event as a way to “step from behind the desk, meet our students where they’re at, and to connect with our scholars and families on a personal level.”
ASU Prep Academy Pilgrim Rest is a tuition-free public charter school open to all students in grades PreK–6. For more information on ASU Prep and the communities it serves, visit asuprep.asu.edu.
