On January 12, the PTA welcomed middle school teacher Mr. Tubbs who introduced parents to the exciting initiatives of PS/IS 30’s STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art Mathematics)program. One of the main goals of STEAM curriculum is to integrate more directly the teaching and learning of all sciences and art. This program is led by Mr. Tubbs for the upper grades and Ms. Moustapha for the lower grades.  Mr. Tubbs’s excitement and enthusiasm spread quickly, especially as he began his presentation with a science experiment and quiz for parents: what do we need to make a fire? Flames soon followed!

PS/IS 30 is quickly becoming a leader in STEAM education through programs such as:

  • School Garden (Kindergarten): Thanks to grant won by Ms. Moustapha, the kindergartners will learn all about planting, growing, and irrigation!
  • Mannahattan Project (Middle School): Created by the Wildlife Conservation Society, this project teaches students about the original ecology of New York City and how it has evolved over time. PS/IS 30 students will also be studying specifically how ecology has changed in Bay Ridge.
  • International Space Station Experiment (Middle School): As participants in a NASA program, students are designing experiment that they will submit to be performed on the International Space Station.
  • Urban Advantage (Middle School): Urban advantage is a network of New York Cultural Institutions (the American Museum of Natural History, New York City Department of Education, Staten Island Zoo, Queens Botanical Garden, WCS/New York Aquarium, WCS/Bronx Zoo) that helps build science education programs at participating middle schools like PS/IS 30.
  • Maimonides Medical Center Residents (Elementary and Middle School): Second-year medical residents will visit classrooms to teach students about the medical profession. In addition, the experience with our students and teachers will also help residents gain experience working with children.
  • School STEAM Mural (PS/IS 30 Afterschool Program): To help get the word out about the exciting programs at our school, the afterschool program students will be creating a mural with the help of Mr. Askew.

Thanks to Mr. Tubbs for the presentation (and for the fiery experiment)!
