The Mobile Ed STEAM Museum visited E.M. Baker School and transformed the gymnasium into a state-of-the-art children’s museum on Jan. 7–8.

All Baker classes in grades K–5 attended the museum to participate in fun, hands-on activities with a focus on science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM).

One of those hands-on activities had students use engineering skills to build a parabolic arch out of large foam blocks, while learning about the function of a keystone and how force is dispersed.

This mobile museum program was made possible with support from the Baker PTA and parent volunteers.
