S.T.E.A.M.-IN with The Simeone

The Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum is pleased to announce our newest educational initiative. S.T.E.A.M.-IN with The Simeone premieres on Tuesday, April 14th at 1:00 PM EST and will feature live, collaborative educational activities and lessons with an automotive theme.

S.T.E.A.M.-IN with The Simeone will be broadcast live every Tuesday and Thursday at 1:00 EST.

Each S.T.E.A.M.-IN stream will be hosted by the museum’s Director of Education, Rick Adams. Participants can look forward to a range of S.T.E.A.M. focused interactive lessons and activities designed so they can participate in real-time.

For now, our streaming lessons are recommended for ages 5-12, but kids of all ages are encouraged to join-in and S.T.E.A.M.-IN they choose. We will host each session live via a remote link through Zoom.us to allow for maximum collaboration. We will post suggested requirements prior to each class such as recommended vocabulary level and needed materials. Most materials used in our streams should be readily available in the home.

After their broadcast, sessions will be made available for download or viewing on simeonemuseum.org and on YouTube.com channel.

Our first S.T.E.A.M.-IN live stream, “How To Make A Saltwater Battery” premieres on Tuesday, April 14th at 1:00 PM EST. You can login via Zoom using the information provided below.

Going forward, we will regularly update our S.T.E.A.M.-IN schedule with new activities on this page, on our website, through social media, and email. Please check in for updates from time to time.
