Proviso STEAM - Summer 2019
About PTHS209 STEAM
Summer Proviso Steam aims to ignite an undying passion for STEAM (Science, Technolgoy, Engineering, Arts and Math) in our youth and local community. We are bringing scientific exploration out from behind the four walls of a traditional school setting and into the forefront of our community. During the summer, students will create a rigorous and thought-provoking project that will stretch across a variety of disciplines. Students will be immersed in a a STEAM-based curriculum and participate in cutting-edge scientific research and hands-on experiences that will provide them with the knowledge and desire to seek out STEAM career opportunities.
STEAM scholars will transform into entrepreneurs, researchers, and chemists as they design and launch their own lotion company. Working in teams, scholars will create their own lotion using chemistry, conduct real market and consumer research, produce a professional and usable business plan to present to potential investors, and tailor an individualized advertising campaign to attract potential customers.
