    Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) Share Fair comes to Columbia

    Students, families, pre-service educators, educators, schools, community groups and leaders encouraged to engage, explore, invent and experiment!

    A full day of learning and fun for everyone.  

    On March 7, the University of South Carolina College of Education and River Bluff High School, in partnership with the Morgridge Family Foundation, welcomed more than 700 participants to Share Fair Nation, a day of free, interactive science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) learning and fun at River Bluff High School in Lexington, SC.

    Share Fair Nation encourages students, families, educators, schools, community groups and leaders to explore, invent and experiment. Families with children of all ages enjoyed the STEAMosphere, a large exhibit that highlighted emerging technologies and consisted of multiple hands-on, interactive STEAM activities. Many student teams entered the Share Fair Competition, showcasing class projects and exhibits. Additionally, local schools  set up booths at the STEAMosphere to display projects and programs that focus on their STEAM initiatives, projects and programs.

    An important component of Share Fair Nation is teacher professional development. This event offered educators a day of free, thought-provoking and highly interactive symposia and professional development workshops. 

    Lessons learned at the Share Fair extended beyond the event, as attendees carried back to their schools, fellow teachers and classrooms new, creative education methods. 

    Share Fair Nation, sponsored by the Morgridge Family Foundation, is a national organization committed to transforming education through teacher training. Over the past five years, Share Fair Nation has worked with more than 3,000 educators around the country through its event workshops.
