STEAM Expo

Now in our fourth year, The Sage School has hosted an annual STEAM Expo for middle school students showcasing the advanced work and prototypes developed by students, with guidance from leading industry professionals in the Boston area and sometimes across the country and around the globe.

STEAM is an acronym for science, technology, engineering, arts, and math.  It is considered the next-generation of STEM.  At Sage, the school also incorporates humanities and foreign languages into this cross-disciplinary concept.

The STEAM Expo is the culmination of months-long, cross-curricular study in a specific area of focus. Using design, scientific, engineering processes, and extensive research, each team worked daily to create a viable solution to their selected topic.

Students are mentored by faculty and external industry partners currently working in related fields. Held each spring, the Expo is where teams exhibit their prototypes and present their findings in a final ‘pitch’ to a team of judges who evaluate the merit, feasibility, and presentation quality.  This simulated real-world business and development environment gives students the practical experience necessary to succeed in future education and careers.

The theme for 2018 Expo is “Well-Being.” It will be held May 7, 6-8pm, at Gillette Stadium Putnam Club.
