BIG PINEY MIDDLE SCHOOL


STEAMakers Workshop

In September of 2017, Eurekus co-founders Monica & Tyler Aiello headed to Big Piney, Wyoming for an exciting week-long workshop with middle school students. Working alongside the schools veteran science teacher Kim Tanner, learners explored STEM topics through dynamic arts and Maker-integration. 6th graders learned about our solar system by creating art projects and designing pneumatic rockets. 7th graders invented hi-tech dioramas to illuminate life science topics using motors and LEDs. And, 8th graders research global energy consumption data and synthesized discoveries while creating kinetic mobiles. From exploring space science through pastels to learning to solder and design circuits, both students and teachers enjoyed their creative and collective discovery.

Out residency was supported by the Pinedale Fine Arts Council and Andeavor.
